So, if you look at the Comiskey Park sketch, there's a note near home plate that reads "plate moved forward 14 feet for Simmons in '34." Anyone get that reference? I assume they're referring to Al Simmons but what's the story?
Most of these were reprinted by TSN in a book I bought in (I seem to think) early 1980s ... Take Me Out to the Ballpark, I think it was.
Crosley: "Bartell held ball while F. McCormick scored"?
Perhaps other accounts of the game might deal with this issue.
What I can't figure out is how Fenway Park went from this (1946) to this (today), adding an upper deck without the seating capacity increasing by more than 2,000.
