  • Ballpark things that have never been hit?

    Does anyone know about important ball park thing that seems to be reachable that has never been hit by a HR? I know of two, the right field roof of Fenway and the Scoreboard @ wrigley although many balls have come close ( I hit the roof on a recent MVP 2005 game lol which got me thinking about this)

    The stadium's gone, but Cleveland Municipal Stadium's bleachers
    Mythical SF Chronicle scouting report: "That Jeff runs like a deer. Unfortunately, he also hits AND throws like one." I am Venus DeMilo - NO ARM! I can play like a big leaguer, I can field like Luzinski, run like Lombardi. The secret to managing is keeping the ones who hate you away from the undecided ones. I am a triumph of quantity over quality. I'm almost useful, every village needs an idiot.

      Nice, just got done playing a 3 game set on MVP 2005. Who'd you hit that bomb with. Have you unlocked any Legends?

      The 40 foot high scoreboard at Wrigley has been there since '37, but if it was there in '32, it might have a dent from GHR's WS blast.

      How bout the slide thing in Milwaukie, and the huge glove in SF.

        I don't believe it's been hit in any regular season games, but I believe it was Sammy Sosa that hit the slide in the 2002 HR Derby (Put an asterik on it cause of the HRD and steroids?).

          I did it with a created player(not one with all maxed out stats, one whos stats are realistic). I cheated to unlock everything but i have 57000 mvp points.Did anyone ever hit the booth in deep center at the polo grounds?

            I know this is a little outdated but I hit the Polo Grounds booth in center with Jimmie Foxx in MVP 2004

              The advertisements behind the bleachers in Yankee Stadium. It seems close too.

                Not sure what you mean by "booth." The clubhouse exit and entrance was through the centerfield area, so maybe that's what you mean?

                  The warehouse at Camden Yards has never been hit during a actual game (Griffey hit it during either BP or the HR derby, depending on who you ask). Although I think Jason Giambi came close last year.

                    the large glove at pac bell is fashioned of fiberglass and was floated to the site by barge from the manufacturer's place of business, located in petaluma. its design is based on a three-fingered glove that is cherished by executive vp and coo of the giants, larry baer . cherished because the glove was used by his grandfather as a kid. (some team execs actually love the game)

                    the distance from home plate to the glove is distanced as 501'.

                    the first few years, the giants ran a contest where a name was pulled for one particular inning of each game. if a giants player hit the glove on the fly in that particular inning, the fan whose name was pulled would win a cool million smackers. andres galarraga was the closest to hitting the sculpture - i recall that right off the bat, it kinda looked like it actually had a chance.

                    no one ever collected the dough.

                          Must have been a righty on the mound. Try using Babe, the hand won't matter.

                            The huge HD screen in deep centerfield at Turner Field. Though it would probably suck if that got hit.

                              Polo Grounds

                              No one ever hit the clubhouse,on the fly,in dead center. This doesn't apply but it amazing. In 1945,The Senators only hit one(1) homer at home all year! Check it out in the book"Baseball Goes To War" by William B. Mead
