Fenway Park’s “Lone Red Seat” (by dbking)
The lone red seat in the right field bleachers (Section 42, Row 37, Seat 21), signifies the spot where the longest measurable home run ever hit inside Fenway Park’s 1934 configuration landed.
Ted Williams hit the home run on June 9, 1946 off Fred Hutchinson of the Detroit Tigers. Williams’ bomb was officially measured at 502 feet (153 m)—well beyond “Williamsburg”. According to Hit Tracker Online, the ball, if unobstructed, would have flown 520 to 535 feet.
