CSI: Home Runs


Mickey Mantle hit a famously long HR at Griffith Stadium against the old Senators. How far did it really go? Link is to a PDF of a presentation showing how one researcher tried to figure it out. For those of you who don't like math, also fun pictures of Griffith Stadium and maps of the neighborhood at the time showing where the ball landed. (h/t: Teh Seekrit Liberrian)
