      Ovals have more than one racing line... RC's, not so much.

          Go to Fenway Park, then go to Yankee Stadium. Tell me they are the same. Only the infield dimensions are mandated. I only know of one field with a 37 foot wall in left field.

            Correctomundo. And Baseball has "ground rules." The umpires go over them with the managers before every game.

              Presumably a similar thing happens in the ICS. The difference is that I've never heard of a "ground rule enforcement" issue in MLB, while the gaps in the ICS rulebook seem to be a mile wide...

                Can't argue with that.

                  Grass or artificial turf?
                  Outfield dimensions?
                  Open-ended or close-ended stadium?
                  Foul territory dimensions?
                  Outfield wall height?
                  Padded or hard walls?

                    Note that only a small portion of the top field is shown.

                      But if one tried to play baseball on a marked football field or one tried to play football on a marked baseball infield, the rules would be different. They are shapeed differently - well doh! - the obvious is not to be hidden.

                      Not long after the Hoosier Dome was built, there was a major league baseball exposition game played. The rule about homeruns was changed due to one side of the outfield being covered by seats attached to the stadium.

                      Dixon always seems to bring the field to the restart point at a less than ideal speed and "nails" it at the line leaving everyone in his dust as the back of the field seems to be trying to gain speed to not be left behind. Thus the middle is a MESS! It makes for less than a smooth restart.
