#3 was definitely before 1901. Foul balls weren't strikes until 1901.
Great to see you back!

Did not get to this fast enough. The answers aren all out there already. Better luck (to me) next time.

I know that the answers to the trivia questions are correct, but I was wondering if anyone remembers whether Babe Ruth ever hit any homeruns that bounced into the seats. I believe in the early part of the century balls that bounced into the seats were considered homeruns.:confused: :confused: :NY: :NY: :NY: :NY:

Prior to 1920, balls that bounced into the stands were counted as home runs. It is not known how many of the Babe's blasts were of this variety, if any. However, how many times does this happen these days? Not that often, if you ask me.
