Baltimore Municipal Stadium was way too narrow of a facility to be able to properly host a professional baseball team. The Polo Grounds and LA's Coliseum presented some problems in configuring a way to keep from having a lot of cheap home runs down the left field line. At Baltimore Muni, a home run to let was just 270 feet away, meaning it was more "deep 3rd base" than left field. (About 60 feet short of what most stadiums qualify as a left field porch, with 330 feet being about average. This means a pop fly that would 60 feet away from most outfield walls, was a home run at this ballpark). What should have been a single season at Baltimore Municipal Stadium would drag on for 6 seasons; perhaps because Oriole Park V picked a terrible time to burn down.
