4/15 Byrd's blast in 4th
Whoever measures the home run distance at Wrigley Field shortchanged Marlon Byrd. He hit a blast to straightaway center, just to the right of the TV camera booth in the fourth. The scoreboard flashed 415 feet, but it was easily 445. It was Byrd’s third homer of the season. He didn’t hit his third last year until May 29, his 39th game.
