Brennan Park, home of the Knights from 1921-76, had a left-field grandstand similar to Comiskey Park-an upper deck topped by a roof. Every once in a great while a slugger would blast a home run onto the left field roof. It took a tremendous blast of about 480 feet to do it, but some renowned sluggers and a few unknowns, both for the Knights and opponents, managed to accomplish the feat, with a few of them doing it twice.
