Kevin Johnson found a photo of Yankee Stadium from the late 1920s that shows just how far Josh Gibson’s 1930 home run must have traveled, wherever it actually landed.

The Dimensions for the stadium were:
LF Line - 301 ft
Straightway LF - 402 ft (somewhere right of where the granstand ends in LF)
Left-center - 461 ft (around the middle of the front of the Left field bleachers)
Left of Centerfield - 490 ft (The corner where the LF wall makes a sharp angle to become the CF wall)
Straight CF - 470 Ft (middle of CF wall just left of scoreboard)
(Note: left/rights from perspective of batter at home plate)
