Mets Reveal New Citi Field Wall

The Mets took media members (my invitation must have gotten lost in the mail!) on a tour of the new Citi Field wall on Tuesday. Here are the dimensions:

The right-center wall was moved in 10 feet from 390 to 380. The little nook closer to the line was moved in five feet from 375 to 370. I would have liked to see the wall just go straight to the foul pole, getting rid of that inset in right. But that will be for a further renovation.

Still, compare it to the original dimensions of the Citi Field wall, which was also much higher in most places, reaching the ridiculous 16 feet in left field:

UPDATE:

Here is a good photo of the change, courtesy of a tweet from Matt Dunn at SNY:
