        Let's not forget Mike Schmidt at Wrigley...he might have set the all time career HR record if he played at Wrigley for his whole career.

        0.307/0.396/0.653
        50 HR in 524 AB (611 PA)

        His swing would have been perfect at Wrigley! I always loved watching him come into Wrigley to hit against the Cubs!

              So true! He was a HR machine at Wrigley.

                  Strange that so many LHB did well at Sportsman's, yet Musial, for whom it was his home park, did not hit there much better than on the road, and hit better at Ebbets and the Polo Grounds than at home.

                  I think a lot these numbers are due to small sample size. Musial had one of the longer careers in history, and he never played more than a little over 200 games--a little more than one season--at any road park. When there were just two eight team leagues, players played just 11 games per season at any road park. After expansion, that number dropped a lot, except for teams in the same division.

                  I'm surprised the Polo Grounds doesn't make GJ's list, because for 1951, BBPro has the HR factor for LHB at 172, which is the highest factor of any kind I've ever seen. Even Coors doesn't venture into that territory. E.g., in 1996, when according to someone in another thread, the Rockies slugged .579 at home, the HR factor was 132 for RHB and 126 for LHB. Park factors are frequently also based on small sample size, and may vary a lot from year to year, but the PG had a consistently high HR factor for both RHB and LHB through the 1950s, till the Giants moved.

                      Mathews' best road park for his career was Crosley. In 156 games he hit 50 dingers and slugged nearly .650

                      In 1953 he had 7 dingers in 11 games there with a slash of .429/.529/.976
                      "By common consent, Ruth was the hardest hitter of history; a fine fielder, if not a finished one; an inspired base runner, seeming to do the right thing without thinking. He had the most perfect co-ordination of any human animal I ever knew." - Hugh Fullerton, 1936 (Chicago sports writer, 1893-1930's)

                        In the hardest stadium in the majors to hit Joe DiMaggio record at griffith Stadium was out of this world. In 1945 no Washington ballplayer hit
                        a HR over the fence for the entire season it was a cavernous place. I looked up Jimmy Foxx, Ted Williams & Greenberg and none of those
                        grat players even compared to Dimaggio at Griffith.

                        .352/.420/.632

                        30HR's in 495 AB's, he hit better at Griffith than he did a Briggs Stadium which is an oddity. In fact the only park he hit better in than
                        Griffith was Sportsman park St. Louis.

                          Famous slugging pitcher Mike Hampton at Wrigley Field: .296/.345/.593, 2 HR, 7 RBI, triple in 30 PA's

                          I can't believe no one mentioned Chipper Jones at Shea Stadium yet. He might not have raked there at as historic a level as some of the guys in GJ's post but he was certainly famous for it. He named his daughter Shea because of his success there. I think he did slow down there towards the last years before Citi Field. Chipper Jones at Shea Stadium: .313/.407/.557, 19 HR, 55 RBI, 20 doubles, 12/12 stealing bases in 377 PA's
                          "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”

                            That is a .964 OPS compared to a .930 for his carer.

                            Certainly better, but hardly anything significantly better. One of the times the story is more exciting than the truth?

                            But you are right - maybe the last few seasons drug him down there? I certainly remember him DESTROYING there too.

                              Took the words right out of my mouth. Chipper was a .300/.400/.500 hitter over his entire 19 year career, so hitting .313/.407/.557 in one stadium is hardly noteworthy.

                              Heck, he hit much better at Veterans Stadium (.350/.471/.618). He should have named his kid Veteran Jones.

                                Yeah, but most of those games at the Vet were in empty stadiums in meaningless games against lousy competition. The rivalry Chipper had with the Mets in the late 90's and early 00's is what fuels the narrative.
