    Don't know much about the roof tops at Comiskey .............................except for the first time the roof was cleared. Over the winter of 1926 Charles Comiskey had a double deck with a roof in RF. Commented, no one will hit one out of here now. An article from my Ruth files, August 16, 1927.

    I study stadium layouts as a hobby ,of the old parks as well, so I do know how far the ball is from the plate vertically and horizontally, when it lands in the bleachers or upper deck. Calculations of home runs are credible, they use the same math to land rockets on the moon, but the home run calculation are not done as precise, so what you end up with is a legitimate estimate. I do my own calculation ,the math is never wrong the problem with the calculations, is the data gathered is sometime incorrect or internally manipulated to get a higher or low out come.
    Hit Trackers / Statcast use sensors to gather initial data on a home runs , the problem with that is once you take your initial reading if there are any changes in atmospheric conditions ,during the flight of to ball, it will alter your final distance. Lets say a batter hit one while it claim 2 second into the flight you get a 15 mph wind gust, but you have taken your reading , your projected distance is
    going to be a lot less than it should be because the wind gust was not part of the calculation. The best way do a calculation is to time the balls total flight and measure the horizontal and vertical distance from home plate. Once you have a time you can get a average and a initial velocity ,after not much to it.
    No one can calculate precise distance of a home run because precise ,data is never provide, but it can get you in ballpark. In closing here's one for you Joc Pederson hit one on 6/2/15
    at Coors Field Statcast had it at 477 feet and I can assure it was 500 feet. The ball hit the RCF upper deck 425 feet from home, 63 ft above the grd at 119.28 Mph, that high above the
    grd with a high initial velocity 477 is very short. That's my two cents. I'm sorry I don't type very well.

    He was only joking.

    Jesus! Wind aided or tornado aided, lol.

    Jenkinson states that no other player besides Ruth ever hit a ball at least 550' in a major league game. That Navin one, estimated at 575' was indeed wind aided. Pretty funny that just ten days earlier Heilmann hit what was considered the longest ever at Navin...one that Jenkinson estimates at 512'. Then along comes Ruth.
    The Jackson home run was hit 7/5/1969

    As you know, one of Babe longest was his final blast at Forbes. Going over a 75 foot high roof (no overhang) just to the left of the 375 mark in right center.
    The right field roof at Forbes Field is 86 feet high.

    Statcast is inconsistence , it's supposed to provide a projected distants of how far the ball would ,had it's flight not been interrupted ,back to field level, in this case it only gives you the actual distance traveled.

Really the year does not matter but check out the difference in distances. Actually what I thought, they do a good job in most, not much difference overall.Home runs.JPG
