On June 9 1946, At Fenway Park, Ted Williams clouts the farthest home run ever hit at Fenway Park, a shot estimated to have traveled 502 feet before striking the straw hat of a fan sitting in seat 21 in the 37th row of section 42 in right field. The seat will be painted red to commemorate the location of the Splendid Splinter’s Ruthian blast, although at the time of the homer the area consisted of bleachers, and not individual seats.
