Deep Run Park (Demolished)
I am building a Baseball Field. I have the field made already, and starting the stands. This is my 3rd design of the stadium.
About this creation
The field is a 1:192 scale model.
Currently holds 472 minifigs.

Sorry that it was later then I said it would be but I wanted to make sure that it was perfect.

Right Field and the Bullpen:


Got bored, and didnt want to build at the moment, so I decided to make this little scene.
This is Roy Hobbs of the NY Knights robbing a homerun in deep right-center field.


I made the dugout larger here for Ryan, to see how the dugout would look. Don't mind the colors because i just made it quickly, but with the dugouts and 5 bricks high, the stadium just doesnt look right. Even though that the field looks minifig scale, it is not. In the scale that I am using it shows that the minifigs are about 20 feet tall.
I originally tried making it minifig scale but it just would have been to large. This I believe is a little bit bigger then the scale that Sean Kenney used in his "Yankee Stadium".

Yes I tore it down. However I might be building another one. I don't know yet, depends on what Im doing this winter for baseball. It would be started until February though because I have midterms in 2 weeks.
Quoting Milo Krimstein NOOOOO YOU TORE IT DOWN! :'-C

I suggest making a smaller ballpark around a field this size, or at least 64 studs in length. I really look foward to new creations from you, Matt.

Quoting Ryan Degener Pretty good considering you play 18u. Hope your new team is good. I played 14u and I was 13. Also, most pitchers only threw about 50 to 60 mph, so games would be high scoring. My team this year was really good, even though we only had 2 good pitchers, both of which could throw 70 mph consistently for strikes.
The higher you play up the better its going to be for you because it means that your going to better yourself over your own age group.

Quoting Ryan Degener I hit for average too, but I'm a center fielder. I can hit home runs on fields less than 300 feet, but those are hard to come by now that I'm 14. This year I batted close to 600, and had the highest average in the league by a lot. However, the pitchers I face are pretty bad. Hope that doesn't change in high school!
.600 is a really good average. I hit .295 this year. I always have a really good spring and I hit .380 but then as the summer comes and baseball is only 3-5 times a week I start slumping. It was also mainly b/c my coaches are trying to help me shoot for the right field gap and let the left field gap come naturally. I also played in a reall crappy league and half of my team was terrible. But then me and 4 players moved onto my new team and we should be really good this year and playing some really good competition. Im supposed to be in like 5 different showcase tournements, and will be in a different state, every weekend in July of 2010.

Quoting Ryan Degener That just means youre good. The only travel team I played on was a little league all star team, and we could have played in the little league world series, but we dindn't even make it to state because we had no pitching or fielding, which pretty much countered good hitting.
I guess that means that im pretty good. I never made the teams to go to Williamsport for the Little League World Series but it was because I didnt become a pitcher until 2-3 years ago when i was 2 years out of Little League. Also I was never a Homerun hitter. I mainly hit for average going for the gaps. (The coaches son also played the same position as me, so I wouldnt have played that much) But Ive played for my school teams from 7-9th grades and most likely will be on it again this year as a Sophmore on Junior Varisty in hopes of making Varsity the following year. I just can't hurt my arm again like I did this past summer. Other then that I've been a starting pitcher for my middle school team in 8th grade and beat out all the sophmores for the Cy Young award this past year (Hopefully I can keep the title for a repeat, though I really only have one player that I will have competition with). Check out a stadium that I built on LDD.

Yeah kinda. It was like kids from a few towns then the coach took me and 2 other kids from my town and brought us along to play for him and we ended up playing for him in a fall season. 2 of us quit but my friend stayed on the team. Ive been on 2 travel teams since then with kids from all over Long Island, NY. I play for this team called the Nationals now. Its gonna be tough thought b/c im playing 18U and im only 16 so im basically playing kids that just graduated high school and just finished there first year of college when im only going to be finishing up my sophomore year in high school.

Quoting Ryan Degener I can't film it this year, but I could cancel out some of the bricklink orders for old sets to buy the minifigs for each team and mail them to you if you pay shipping costs, and you mail them back when you are done, but I don't plan to do that, so I just won't have the series filmed. Also, exactly how did you get the name for the stadium? I also made significant changes to my new stadium, and the pics are up. I liked how your rising outfield wall looked, but I started it at the beginning of the left field outfield wall and stopped it where the new right field bleachers were added.
Okay about the filming. with the name: in '06 I went to a baseball tournement in Cooperstown, New York and one of the activities you can do there is pin trade with the other teams. So I got a pin with the name of the Deep Run Thunderhawks and I thought that it might be a good name for a stadium. And to the wall. Thats not what I meant by how the walls get higher. I meant like how my stadiums foul territory gets small as you get closer to the homerun wall.

Quoting Milo Krimstein I think deep run is not the best of names, so you could consider things or people you like and name it after them. (example, Pepsi park, Ben stiller stadium etc...) Or you could just conjour up a really cool sounding name like "Excelsior Grounds". you could also be realistic and name it after an ugly sounding company or bank, like Walmart field or Washington Mutual Ballpark.Just some ideas.
Okay, Yeah I have no idea whether or not I wanted to keep the name as Deep Run Park. I was just looking through some pins from baseball teams that I've played and thought that it could be a possibility as the name. Thats why Ive been asking if anyone likes the name or if anyone could think of one. Your the first person to actually comment on it. Thanks.

Quoting Ryan Degener I made a minifig scale park I plan to build over the next few years. If you still want to film the LLB world series, you can, but when I finish part of the main grandstand and the field, I will film the series.
You can film it. I didnt realize that you wanted me to use teams from the building contest thing you had. I am going to the West Nyack Lego store sometime this week, in hopes of finishing the field level and to start on the 2nd tier.

Quoting Ryan Degener Technically, 2 x 2 is a minifig scale base. Basically, it needs to be able to convert to minifig scale. You need to make dugouts big enough to sit in, which is 3 or 4 studs high, or, just make make the dugouts without roofs. The seats are fine. This is only for LLB games, otherwise, it is still microscale like it was intended it to be. It is a macro-mini stadium, it can be both minifig and microfig scales.
Well as of right now the 2 by 2 wont work cause im going to be glueing the 1 by 1 base onto the field b/c of how the foul line is going to be set up. And I think the field is perfectly fine set up. I really don't thing anything has to be changed to fill a game. I dont even think ill be able to b/c i wont have even figs, and ill probably just end up making people slightly bigger then what sean kenney used.

Ill try with the dugouts. I don't think I will do advertisements however. They are on all the MLB stadiums, but I think that they will just take away from how the stadium was built. And to the 2 by 2 bases, its just that they look to big. it doesn't fit in to how I made the field. Its like if I change one thing, it has a chain reaction and I end up having to change other things aswell.

I thought of a great idea for the dugouts. Make them as high as you can so that a minifig in the stands can still see, but a player can at least sit down. Also, may I suggest 2x2 plates for bases. Another idea is to print out advertisements and tape them to the walls. I do that to a few of my stadiums.

Well as of right now, it will probably be 1 or 2 days after Christmas. When I go to New Jersey for Christmas im going to try and see if I can go to the lego store there the next day, but if not im going to buy pieces off bricklink for the seats, foul lines, and concourse.

The dugouts need to be fixed, but the brick thing is optional. The dugouts should be at least 5 bricks tall. Underground ones work well with your blachers, and you could always make the dugouts go farther back into the stands.

Sorry that the Update appeared so late but the stands had to be perfect. The hardest part was the triangle corner pieces to the right of the right field foul line. I am starting the stands behind homplate now. Comment on anything that I could improve on. And does everyone like the name? I am still unsure about it. Also enjoy the little scene that i made.

Quoting Ryan Degener Um... you might have to use bricks for seat, otherwise minifigs can't see opver eachother, and you can make the dugouts bigger. You can also make certain sections a different color. See my New Sean Kenney Stadium for an example. The field is already perfect, but may I suggest advertisements. Also, do you plan to make a huge jumbotron type scoreboard? They are relatively easy.
Alright I will try with the dugouts. I am toying with the stands right now to get them perfect, though I am running out of Blue pieces. I like you different color sections idea. Maybe ill use like red or something for the the next level and the levels up. I will see about that when I am buying the pieces. Yes I do plan on making a jumbotron and a scoreboard. Im planing it to be about 4 15/16in by 7 13/16 in. That comes out to be about 16 studs by 26 studs. This will have a scoreboard on top of it. Write back if you have any more ideas. Ive been sick yesterday and today so I have been working on my stadium a lot.

Yeah, im going to put in foul lines, i just dont have the pieces for it yet. Im going to make a skinny foul line by tak a 4 by 1 tile and stacking up 4 of them and puting them on there side. As to the scoreboard, I plan on making the scoreboard after I atleast finish the the field level seats. And with the Dugout, I cant really make it any bigger then it its right now. B/c if I make it any higher then it will be much higher then the seats. So I dont think I will be able to do that. How do you like the name. I was looking at the name of one of the teams that I have played and I was like that would be a good name for the stadium. I plan on making a stadium website soon to show all the dimensions and everything so I will post that and updated pictures shortly.

Quoting Ryan Degener This is great, and you should try for minifig scale seats, which would be any way a minifig can sit down. This could beat Sean Kenney's.
Well I dont know if I would be able to use minifig scale seats. I want to try and make the stadium as accurate as possible with the different sections. If I added the mini fig seats I would probably only get maybe 2 or 3 seats per section. I made the stadium on LDD until it was to big for LDD and the stadium looked good and, I don't think It really would have made a difference if the seats were there or not. (I will post the LDD picture after this reply post) As to Sean Kenney's Yankee Stadium, I have based a lot of my ideas off some of the things that he has done. -Matt P.S.-Check out my new page for Lego Baseball Mini figures.

Here you go. I just took these tonight. So far I have the field done and am 98% done with the field level concourse on the first base side moving into centerfield. I should be starting the seating within the next couple of days but I will need many more pieces. Im still trying to decide though if I want to do just the dots of the regular lego bricks are the seats like how they are in sean kenneys model of Yankee Stadium, or if I want to use actual seats.
