On March 23, 1955 —  160-something pound rookie Roberto Clemente flashes some of his under-publicized power in the form of a triple, “425 feet to the fence in center,” according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Jack Hernon. In the process, Clemente hits a laser to the deepest part of the ballpark in the Pirates’ spring training home, Terry Park, in Fort Myers, FL, in the 3rd inning of an exhibition game against the Chicago White Sox. However, as Pittsburgh Press writer Les Biederman recounts, (Clemente) “then was an easy out at the plate when he tried to stretch the drive into an inside-the-park homer.”
