This might be a preview of Triples Alley at Oracle Park. This photograph was taken on April 21, 2015, at AT&T Park. This was during batting practice when Triples Alley was fenced off for fans to hang out in this area before a SF Giants game.

The SF Giants are considering fencing off Triples Alley and putting the bullpen there. When a batter hits a ball toward this corner which is very difficult, it usually results in a triple. The deep right field corner is 421 feet. Any decisions about Oracle Park’s configuration will take at least a few years.

Bruce Bochy’s opinion is open minded about the change feeling if someone can hit a ball 400 feet, it should be a home run.

Is it wise to recognize when goals are out of reach and need to be adjusted to be more realistic? Analyzing what can be fairly achieved in the game of life is hard to comprehend. Goals can be assumed to be unattainable until the attempts are performed. Reaching a goal thought as unattainable can also be a wonderful surprise and achievement.

For the SF Giants, will removing Triples Alley make the game of baseball a more even playing ground at Oracle Park?
