Why does everyone play at Shippet?

SDS

Do the balls fly out farther there than say Colorado?

It's pretty much Colorado but without the lag of the MLB stadiums. It stinks because some of these stadiums are so beautiful but SdS has not figured out a way to make them lag free online. It's a shame that every game I have to stare at that giant wooden batter's eye.

It’s high elevation, not as laggy, and the fences are short. not much more you could want except for more stuff to look at

SDS

I don’t know but I wouldn’t mind that stadium being taken out of the game. I am SO. DANG. TIRED. of playing at Shippett.

SDS

I play at iron horse or date palm. But yes shippet is used the most because it allows the most bs homeruns of any stadium. Shippett specials that only go out in that park, any where else they are outs

Except maybe some kegs set up at each base. If you’re looking for some good beer league softball action where there are enough home runs for all the fans to bring home a free souvenir, then that [censored] park was tailor made for you.

If you want something that feels like a baseball game, not so much...

I play all my games at wrigley field. I’ve gotten so use to what ever lag there might be that I now have a advantage over most people I play because they are not use to the timing of a field that has some lag.

i never do shippet is a trash stadium

SDS

Also people like boosting stats. So it’s prestige driven as well

SDS

Date Palm Field is best field

SDS

I haven't seen Shippet as much as earlier in the year.

SDS

One thing nobodys mentioned is that the batters eye is really clean. It makes it easier to pick up pitches out of the hand.

It’s the most used because it’s the most rewarding. Some players don’t like lineout fests

SDS

i am playing at the main street field i think it's called. I really like that one as it seems no lag and pretty fair. but i hardly see anyone playing at that field.

SDS

I don't mind Shippett. The elevation can make things annoying sometimes, but it isn't as exaggerated as Laughing Mountain (and it doesn't have that dumb billboard in CF either)

I play there too but not for that reason. For obvious reasons I’m a Cubs fan too and my team and uniforms are the Cubs uniforms. I’ve never noticed any lag. Either that or I’m just used to it that I don’t even know it’s happening

SDS

It’s pretty boring but I like baseball city. Not a launching pad like shippet no lag and a really clean batters eye.

Shippet is for scrubs who think baseball is purely about hitting and home runs. There’s a reason all the popular streamers and “top players” only play home games at shippet. It’s to boost their averages and make them look like they’re incredible hitters, when the truth is, a weak pop fly will carry out at shippet. If they all had to play at a reasonable stadium, maybe things would look different and the best players in the game wouldn’t have ERA above 5-6 despite being the greatest players on paper.

Ridiculous take lol. People play at shippett cuz they don’t like lineout fests. What stadium do u play at? Maybe we could play a game there since shippett players are scrubs

This and Oak street are my go to parks. Main Street can be a little cheesy due to the lack of a wall in RF, but it generally plays fair.
