The number of home runs that have been hit at Great American Ball Park so far in 2013… stands at (153). This feat has been accomplished in 67 games to date, at an average of 2.28 per contest. Although, it looks like Milwaukee’s Miller Park (167), will capture the crown for most (NL) dingers hit during the season? Great American is in a tight race with Philadelphia’s Citizens Bank Park (155) and Chicago’s Wrigley Field (157) for the wild card, and holds a slightly higher average, per game statistic, than the other competing parks mentioned a-fore.
Here’s to hoping the Dodger offense can assist them in they’re stadiums wild card conquest.
Todd Frasier, holds the record for farthest ball hit to date, at Great American Ball Park, in 2013 alone, at 470 ft.
(By the way, Yasiel Puig, holds the Dodger Stadium record so far, at 443 ft.)
