‘Lectric Acres

‘Lectric Acres was first conceived and used during Season 4, yet over its short time as a field in the Annals it has become one of the most storied fields in the sport’s history. Built on the back half-acre pasture at a Buckos’ homestead, the field owes its name to the electric fences which outlines the play area. The site has hosted both the 2nd and 3rd running of the Oregon Tapey Beercone Invitational and it was the site of the sport’s first double header event. Two Beerpopes have been coronated on the premises.

A view of ‘Lectric Acres’ infield.

The field is free of obstacles and with one of the widest playing areas in the sport, mostly flat with a slight up hill pitch toward the third base line. To both left and right field the pasture fencing provides a very achievable home run line. These facts would lead one to expect the park to play to the favor of offense. Instead, the obstacle free outfield gives fielders the maneuvering room to make extra plays, and the pasture grass eating up ground balls limiting their damage. It is for these reasons that the field has throughout it’s history played as a very defensive park.
