I just seems strange that more guys aren't in that club, like Kittle, Melton, Allen, etc.

You mean the same Melton who led the AL in HRs in 1971 with 33?

:tongue:

Old Comiskey wasn't the most homer friendly park in baseball. No accident all the guys who hit 40 + homers for the Sox did it playing in New Comiskey.

remember some of the blasts that landed on the roof or cleared it at Old Comiskey....mamoth!

remember in early 70's signs outside indicating where some hoeruns had allegedly landed

Joe Crede next year I think will join that club too, unless he gets hot like Ryan Howard and hits 11 more homeruns this month.

Different era too- no roids, balls not juiced, lots of possibilities. Most players in the "old days" were told NOT to strength train, too.

It would be nice, and I'm rooting for it, but I doubt he'll make it this year. I can see it at some point in the future though.

Also, it seems like Dye has a very good shot to hit 44+ home runs. It just seems odd that as good as Frank was for so long here, Jermaine Dye will probably end up passing him to be second on the single season home run list. It really emphasises how great Dye's season really has been.

Not when you consider the dimensions at the old park (as well as bigger parks in general throughout the league before all the small bandboxes were built).

Fisk once hit 37 dingers :o:

I had weekend season tickets that season. :cool:

Mags hit 38 in 2002 and Robin Ventura hit 34 in '96 IIRC.

It will be particularly delicious when he hits #40 off a Cleveland pitcher.

Wow I forgot about those signs. I don't think they signified where they landed - they were all posted on the viaduct wall of the parking lots. My fuzzy memory tells me that those red signs originally were placed on the roof of the old park where they went out with the name of the player that hit it. They were later moved to the parking lots

I wish somebody would hit 50 so Albert Belle doesn't hold that record.

Not to take anything away from Dye, but if Thomas played at the Cell with all of the new changes at the park.....he would have had a 50 HR year in there when he was in his prime. New Comiskey was one of the hardest parks to hit the ball out of for a number of years.

Same here.
