Ballparks are like snowflakes: No two are exactly the same. Sure, there are certain hard-and-fast rules -- 90 feet to first, 60 feet 6 inches to home -- but unlike other sports, baseball leaves plenty of room to play in the margins. Want to stick a giant green wall in left field? If you can dream it, you can do it.
That freedom does lead to some ... oddities, though. After all, the weirder the stadium, the weirder the rules governing that stadium. We've compiled seven of the strangest official ground rules for MLB parks -- can you figure out which field they apply to?
