  • Yankee Stadium is known for its short porch that often turns routine fly balls into home runs. Texas Rangers manager Chris Woodward is definitely not a fan of Yankee Stadium. Woodward’s Rangers fell victim to the ballpark’s short outfield during the 1st game of their doubleheader against the New York Yankees on Sunday. Yankees 2nd baseman Gleyber Torres walked off Texas with a home run into the right-field bleachers.   “It’s a small ballpark. That’s an easy out in 99% of ballparks,” Woodward told reporters.
