West-facing Baseball Fields

According to Wikipedia, there are only two west-facing professional baseball fields, Wahconah Park in Pittsfield, Mass. and Sam Lynn Ballpark in Bakersfield, Calif. I am familiar with Wahconah Park and a beautiful place it is. It was built in 1919 before ballpark lights and night games so games took place earlier in the day, long before sunset. Now with lights and night games, there is frequently a temporary suspension of games while the sun is setting because the sunset is directly into the eyes of batters. It is another nice little quirk in an already excellent site for a baseball game.
