There may be a few more home runs hit to right field next season at Citi Field.

The Mets are planning to build a new fan attraction behind the right-center-field fence during the offseason, and therefore will be moving the fence in "slightly," according to The New York Post's Mike Puma.

It will be third change in dimensions at the ballpark since Citi Field opened up in 2009.

Back then, the deepest part of the right-center-field fence was at 415 feet. From 2011 through 2014, that part of the right-center-field fence was set at 390 feet, per ESPN.

The Mets then moved it in a bit for the 2015 season to 380 feet. The right-center-field walls moved in 5 to 11 feet, depending on the spot. That made it 375 feet in some parts of right-center, where it has remained.

The right field line has not changed over the years, staying at 330 feet to the pole.
