    296.
    Awaiting an explanation of this reference . . .
    Distance from home plate to right field foul pole in old Yankee Stadium was 296 feet. At least this was the distance for more years than any other distance. (The field dimensions were changed from time to time.)
    On the other extreme.....

    457 in "Death Valley" + 60s ballparks + Bob Gibson height pitching mounds + Gibson, Drysdale and McClain headhunts = "Moscow Olympic batting averages"!

    I'm only surprised that I never heard it before.

    House, a former pitching coach with the Texas Rangers and co-founder of the National Pitching Association near San Diego, is one of the first players to describe steroid use as far back as the 1960s.

    He was drafted in 1967 by the Braves and pitched eight seasons for Atlanta, Boston and Seattle, finishing his career with a 29-23 record and 3.79 ERA.

    House, 58, estimated that six or seven pitchers per team were at least experimenting with steroids or human growth hormone. He said players talked about losing to opponents using more effective drugs.

    "Let Steroids Into The Hall Of Fame"

    This was news to me:

    <<In 1961, during his home run race with Roger Maris, Mickey Mantle developed a sudden abscess that kept him on the bench. It came from an infected needle used by Max Jacobson, a quack who injected Mantle with a home-brew containing steroids and speed.>>
