Just wondering while looking thru the stats--how many Hrs guys like Melton, Kittle, Allen, Luzinski, & before them Zernial, E. Robinson would hit at the Cell. Also how many Hrs would Frank, Paulie, Maggs have hit at Old Comiskey?????

Some Sox fans were asking a similar question about Kittle and Luzinski in relation to hitting so many roof shots after old Comiskey moved up home plate. But don't question the power of Kittle before injuries caught up with him. When he was trying out for the Sox in old Comiskey, he hit a line drive through one of the archways in left field.

Even with the dimensions of the old park, Melton hit most of his home runs at home. Things were tough all over for power guys, considering he led the league hitting only 33. One can only speculate what he would do if his prime were today. I'm sure Giants fans wonder how many home runs Mays and McCovey would have hit in their new park.
