The San Diego Padres might have an easier time hitting a home run this season.

Construction is underway in Petco Park to shorten the outfield fences by about 10 feet -- in addition to a few more changes. The most dramatic alteration will be in left center, where the fence will go from 402 feet to 390 feet.

The visitor bullpen will also change locations, moving it behind the home bullpen. Plus the out-of-town scoreboard on the right field wall will be relocated to a new spot above right field.

The construction began last October and will be ready by Opening Day on April 9 when the Padres face off against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
