On May 17, 1971, Tom McCraw of the Washington Senators hits one of the shortest home runs in history. McCraw’s 140-foot pop fly falls in between three Cleveland Indians, shortstop Jack Heidemann, and outfielders Vada Pinson and John Lowenstein. When the three players collide, McCraw circles the bases for an inside-the-park home run.
