The Other Fifteen

Eighty-five percent of the f---in' world is working. The other fifteen come out here.


This in no way undermines the dignity of the sport.

Watching Dodgers-Red Sox at the Coliseum (available on NESN if you get it; it's not blacked out, for you fellow satellite owners.)

Well, Tim Wakefield's personal catcher, Kevin Cash, hit a home run to put the Red Sox up by two. As I'm sure you know, the Coliseum is not exactly set up like a baseball stadium. Fence distance out to left is about 200 feet down the foul line. So I watched the replay a few times, did some measuring, and came up with this hit location:

 

Beautiful. Did I mention that Chan Ho Park is now pitching for the Dodgers? This is high comedy.

    Why is it only 200 feet for the exhibition game? When the Dodgers played there the first 4 years they were in LA, it was 250 feet. Still ridiculous, but not 200 feet ridiculous.

    Maddog:

    Since the last time the Dodgers played there, several rows of seats have been added to bring people closer to the football field.

    Thanks. I figured it was something like that, but didn't know and was way too lazy to look it up.

    I don't think so. I saw the home run on the tube, it was to the CF side of the screen, and about 25 rows back in the seats.

    Your image indicates it was much more to left.

    My best guess, home run at Fenway, deep out most other fields, but not a medium range fly ball as your graphic indicates.

    it would have been sweet if Chan Ho would have scissor kicked tim belcher again, just for olds times sake. They could have brought him out before the game started or something
