Baseball is one of the few  sports where the playing field is not standardized:
- The outfield can vary substantially in size and shape from ballpark to ballpark.
- The presence / absence of fences can change the possibility of an out-of-the-park home run.
This adds up to the strange situation where a home run in one stadium might have been an easy out in another.
 Cricket fields also vary in size and shape. And in golf, the non-standard courses are a crucial feature, not a problem.
Although the outfield can vary substantially, the infield does not exhibit the same level of variation.
But it certainly could!
Figures 1 through 5 (below) show several possible ways of reconfiguring the standard baseball diamond.
PROS: Bizarre stadium arrangements could entertain the fans and increase the chance that an “out of date” stadium would be torn down (and a new one constructed), thus increasing the amount of money that can be siphoned away from taxpayers in the city funding the stadium.
CONS: The extreme variation in fields would make it even more difficult to compare player statistics across ballparks. A player who only plays on the “has exactly one base” field (Figure 5, left side) will probably have an extremely disappointing number of total home runs.
