Fences or 1 would have been a hr.I only hit hrs by accident,I'm a line drive hitter and the fences are 15 feet high.


.....can't tell you how many times a season I hit the fence without it going over :-\

I run into the same problem on fenced fields.  Our fences are anywhere from 280 in left to 310 in right center.  The fence is 10 ft high, with golf-range-style nets above.  The HR line is 25 feet up.  I hit the fence due to line drive type stuff, but I've yet to put one over in 3 years.

On open fields, those line drives are home runs.

Another good night either 4-5 or 5-5 depending how it was scored.
the for sure hits were two singles,a triple,and a HR.


.....HR suprised the hell out of me because the fence is at 310 and 15 feet high.

A lot of big hitters have switched to the 26s.  It's all about batspeed.

Scum of the earth, IMO.

You can literally kill a pitcher if you do that.

Anybody live in Brooklyn ??? I saw they have a coed league for singles.
they put you on a team and make sure it's guy-girl.the rosters fill up quick it looks like.

I would be in full dbag mode. Swinging for the fences, smacking broads asses, talking trash to my out of shape teamates. It would be gold.
