    the shortest spot in a MLB park might be Fenway at around 310 down the line. So with an aluminum bat i would say yes.

    i don't think i could do it in my first 25 swings.

    i would have to practice for a week. and then i would probably still fail.

    I've taken batting practice at Fenway Park and Citi Field a few years ago. But didn't hit one out. :([​IMG][​IMG]

    Possibly, but I was a leadoff man. Never was a huge power guy.

    I played softball forever and hit exactly one home run. I always had one of the highest batting averages on the team. I was a regular Charlie Hustle singles hitter.

    Have you heard the "pizza.....pizza here" guy on the game when you're playing the A's at home? I got pizza from him for the first time last week.
