The home run is the second-longest hit on to Eutaw Street in game action.


It's fitting that as Roar from 34 kicks off "Eutaw Street Week" another batter became a bronze bomber by putting a ball onto the walkway between the stadium and the warehouse. Unfortunately, it wasn't for the home team.

Adam Dunn stroked a 442-foot home run in the second inning of Sunday's 5-3 loss to the Nationals that one-hopped the warehouse. Dunn's blast was the second-longest Eutaw Street home run during game action, missing Henry Rodriguez's 443-foot shot on June 17, 1997, by just a foot.



According to Roar from 34's unofficial tally, Dunn is the second player to visit Eutaw Street this season after Aubrey Huff did so in April. Dunn's was the 50th Eutaw Street home run overall.
