Hey, Scott, if you're going to drive around this upcoming Sunday let me know. I'm currently on the DL as well (sigh, fractured elbow is the lose), so I was thinking of checking out various parks to see if it's in use on Sundays.

Maybe we can split up by cities or something, dunno.

You two should go together--it turns down the boredom.

I prefer golden gate to king. The infield dimensions are similar (not identical, by any stretch), GG is fenced in, there's no glass building in center field, and it's a million times easier for newcomers to spot. Plus, home runs can't get lost in ivy in LF, no dogs, and no wall to run into if you're tracking a fly ball in CF or RF. Its accessible by a major bus line (72/72R), with a stop directly in front of the field. If we're concerned with turnout, I think GG is preferable.

I actually agree with all of these points. My only issue is that GG has a small infield.

But can someone remember--- I think the other diamond at GG is actually bigger.

The other field may be larger, but I'll have to measure it to be certain. The only issue I have with that diamond is the fact that the sun could be a problem while fielding. I like the orientation of the side we use. Plus, the shade keeps me from burning.

in my opinion:

90 foot basepaths > all the things nick just said.

the other GG diamond appears to be roughly the same size as the one we've used (could even be a bit smaller). My biggest problem with that diamond is the ~195 ft left field wall (no joke... that's what Google Earth measures it at).
