You've got these smaller ballparks. Give me four more Wrigley Fields to hit in when I played and see what kind of numbers I would have put up. How many of the balls that I hit to the warning track would've been in six rows deep at Coors Field? At my peak I probably averaged about 38 homers a season. If I played today I'd probably average about 53. So if you weigh one of my old homers it might be equal to about 1.4 of today's.
