Sportsman's Park

Sportsman's Park

Immediately before a visit by the New York Yankees, who were known for their left-handed power, a screen was erected at Sportsman’s Park that stretched from the right-field foul pole 156 feet toward center. At 21.5 feet tall and extending from the top of the outfield wall to the roof, the
screen’s intended effect was to deny a huge portion of right field to home-run hitters. (NATIONAL BASEBALL HALL OF FAME LIBRARY, COOPERSTOWN, N.Y.)
