Tale of the Tape: Part II

When we last left our intrepid reporter duo they had just faced mortal peril and possible trespassing charges for sneaking on the field at RFK to measure the distance from home plate to the outfield fences. The mortal peril stemmed from their decision to eat the RFK pizza on the way.

As suspected, Barry and the Boz found that the signs in the outfield were off by a whopping 14 feet. There's a big difference between 380 feet and 394 feet. No wonder our guys were tearing their hair out. Hopefully this will help everybody relax a little bit and maybe they'll start trying to hit it down the line instead of out into death valley.
