437 is a joke. I'm thinking it was about 460.

437 is a joke. I'm thinking it was about 460.460 would put it in the last rows of seats. Everett hit one there earlier this year. It wasn't that far. 437 sounds about right.

I was in Sec. 111, so I got a good profile look at it. It landed in the next to last row or third to last row before the Concourse. It was crushed, no doubt about that. I still wake up at night in a cold sweat over it.......

I was in 527 row 6 and the ball landed beyond my sightline. That means it had to be a few rows from the concourse. That ball was absolutely crushed.

I was in section 535 with a direct line of sight to the right field stands. That ball was no less than 2 rows from the concourse, for what it's worth. He killed it. Usually from that angle, you can't tell if something is a homerun or a high pop to right, but with that homerun it was obvious right off the bat.
