Another Long Left Field Fence

Another Long Left Field Fence, From Davis Barker

Davis found the following note in The Sporting News:

The First Erie Sailor to hit the ball over the left field fence at General Electric Field, home of the Mid-Atlantic League club, has been promised an airplane ticket to Boston Bees Park by Business Manager Jack O’Connor…it might be a quick route to a chance in the majors, except for the fact that the fence is 420 feet from home plate.

From The Sporting News, May 5, 1938
