→ Red Sox have discovered one opponent for Friday’s ALDS GAme

Rob Bradford over at WEEI makes an interesting point:

As far as the challenges facing the hitters, at 3 p.m. the shadow/sunlight dividing line stands about five feet in front of the mound, making the identification of pitchers’ deliveries appreciably more difficult. The Fenway Park lights will most likely be on, helping brighten some of the shadows, but the payoff is minimal, according to the batters.

Thankfully, the Red Sox get a few days to try to learn to play in these conditions.1


  1. Not that baseball players are not used to playing in the sun, anyway.
