Fewer Dingers

March 19, 1959, Appleton Post-Crescent
This story is somewhat timely, in that Major League Baseball opened its season yesterday.  And just in time for the 1959 baseball season, comes this news...that home runs will be rarer than the season before, thanks to the new, higher fence in right field.  What I find more newsworthy is that the Foxes were able to rent out the park for only $50 per game.  But then it WAS 1959.
