Stadium impressions: Hel-lo?
I am glad to see that quite a few baseball fans (plus a couple other folks) have already registered to use the new feedback features on this Web site. To my surprise, however, very few of them have posted their own "stadium impressions" thus far. Perhaps it is because the link to make use of that feature is found way down near the bottom of the stadium pages. In hopes of generating more interest in that feature, therefore, I have put additional "Stadium impressions" links in a more prominent position near the top of those pages for which impressions have already been registered. I may add such links for a few other pages soon.
More on "Limbo"
Following up on yesterday's note, I have posted a new page: Stadiums in Limbo.
Home run expert
UPDATE: Bruce Orser, who has done a great amount of research on tape measure home runs, reports that the Yankees measured to the point on the facade where Mantle's 1963 home run struck, and it was 374 feet from home plate. I didn't think the upper deck was that far (30 feet) behind the right field fence. Bruce also writes, "All were in agreement that the home run was still going up when it struck the facade. The only dissenter is Hector Lopez who says it struck the facade straight on." Bruce also brought to my attention hittrackeronline.com, which has a comprehensive database of home runs, including estimates on distance and trajectory angle, and with video clips to boot!

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.
The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:
- Wild birds (LAST)
- Science & Technology
- Latin America
- Culture & Travel
- Canaries ("Home birds")
- Baseball (FIRST)
