It's the Summer of '53 in Washington, DC. Steamy hot, as usual, and the Senators are entertaining the Boston Red Sox. Mickey Vernon is at bat for Washington. He'll go on to lead the American League in batting (.337) and doubles (43), but the Senators will finish well off the pace in the American League -- also as usual.
Product FeaturesAlthough it was a small ballpark (its capacity never exceeded 30,000), the dimensions of the playing field made Griffith a pitcher's dream. In 1953, the distance from home plate to the left field foul pole was a mere 405 feet. It was 421 feet to straightaway center and 320 feet down the rightfield line. The entire right side of the outfield was protected by a 30-foot high wall, similar to Fenway's Green Monster.
