Ethier Hits the Spot

"Remember when he used to hit 'em out?" asks a wistful goodchild27.

Last year SoSG reader goodchild27 attended the Dodgers-Orioles series at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, in which Andre Ethier crushed a home run that reached Eutaw Street, which runs in front of the famous warehouse behind right field.

The Orioles have a tradition in which a home run hit by any player, home or away, in that area is commemorated by a plaque. Above is Ethier's.

Thanks, goodchild, for the photo update! It's hard to believe that was only last year.

Awesome find, Orel (and goodchild27)! Noticed that the O's site doesn't yet have the digital link to Ethier's HR, but it does have Shawn Green's June 8, 2002 Dodgers HR (410').

Whoops, scratch that. Andre is #67, right above the base of the building (above the words "right field" on he blueprint image).
