Petco Park

Big-league baseball is a game of inches. A deep-deep-deep fly ball could become a game-winning home run—or disappoint millions. It's also a numbers game. Few know more about the stats behind Petco Park than Ken Kawachi, VP of ballpark operations. Kawachi oversees more than 50 full-time employees—and over 500 part-timers during baseball season. He breaks down the numbers behind one of MLB's most iconic fields.
