The selling point of Comerica Park is its huge outfield. The dimensions here would be better suited for Coors Field. It got so ridiculous that two years after the Stadium opened, inner fences were built in left field, and in 2005 the empty space was filled with the bullpens. The biggest change in distances was in left-center field; in 2000, it was 395 feet to left-center, but after 2006, it became only 370 feet.

Comerica Park was host of the 2005 All-Star Game.
