On May 19, 1959, pitcher Billy O’Dell of the Baltimore Orioles hits a 120-foot home run against the Chicago White Sox. O’Dell’s “drive” hits the foul line and bounces over the head of right fielder Al Smith, allowing O’Dell to circle the bases. Thanks to O’Dell’s two-run, inside-the-park home run, the Orioles win the game, 2-1.
