Major League Baseball (MLB) canceled Spring Training and has, at minimum, delayed the start of the 2020 regular season because of COVID-19. With no solid start date, baseball fans across the USA, including the Vricon and Apollo Mapping teams, are wondering when we will hear the crack of the bat, smell the popcorn, and cheer during the mascots’ shenanigans.
From the Arctic Circle to the Sunshine Coast, San Francisco to Riyadh, Vricon offers fully textured 3D data with the world’s highest-quality commercial satellite imagery. Vricon has coverage of all major U.S. cities, and this means we can visit ballparks virtually before it’s safe to grab our mitts and head to the stadiums in person. Take a look at these 3D views from space with us.
The Boston Red Sox have the oldest working park in the country: Fenway Park was originally built in 1912. The Green Monster could be picked out anywhere!
For Yankees fans, may we present the new Yankee Stadium, just across the street from the old Yankee Stadium. It is also home to Major League Soccer’s New York City FC.
How many home runs have landed in McCovey Cove? San Francisco Giants fans might know the answer to this question about stunning Oracle Park.
The highest ballpark in MLB, far and away, is Coors Field in downtown Denver, the Colorado Rockies’ home field. This is not far from Apollo Mapping’s HQ in Boulder.
Last but not least is our own home plate and home of the 2019 World Series champs: Nationals Park in Washington, D.C.
Hopefully we can watch our teams play in person soon, but, until then, Vricon and Apollo Mapping can take you out to the ballgame.
