  • Joe D and stats

    Joe D hit 361 hrs in 13 years
    He also hit from the right side while playing half his games in Yankee Stadium where, some may not know, the dimensions were 463 with a twelve ft wall to left center, 457 same wall dead center and 407 same wall right center
    Short, 302, down the left field line, but I wonder how many 420 ft cans of corn Joe D hit over the years
    Of course this goes for any right handed power hitter in Yankee or even the old Polo Grounds where the dimensions were thought up by a quadrophrenic.

    Im guessing thats a typo, or we've all just overlooked 3 consecutive 120HR seasons in a row by the same person.

      He was talking about the war years, playing at army camps.

        haha, yeah...during his 'service' with his tailored uniforms being followed around by cameras at all times. But to be fair, he probably did a lot to help morale and sell war bonds.
