Briggs Stadium, Detroit
September 10 1960
Notes: May 22 1963 at Yankee Stadium
Mickey Mantle connected with a pitch that sent the ball rocketing out of the
stadium...almost. It struck the facade just a few inches from the top and
bounced back into the infield. Through complex computer calculations, it has
been estimated that the ball, had it cleared the facade, would have traveled 734
Longest home run....almost.
Some more notes: Mark McGuire's longest
home run was a mere 545 feet, May 16 1998 in Busch
Stadium, St. Louis.
