What is "Controversy Corner"?

Controversy Corner describes one of the subtle nuances of an old-time park that has been incorporated into Petco. Its near the Western Metal Building.

“While the building provides a distinct touch to the ballpark, it has raised one of the biggest questions about how the park will play. Manager Bruce Bochy and GM Kevin Towers have already dubbed the area “controversy corner” because of the difficulty umpires could have making fair or foul calls. Terraces from the building hang over the field so a left fielder could be camped under a fly ball only to have it land in the seats above his head.”
