Eutaw Street Chronicles

Chris Davis

April 30, 2015

The Baltimore Orioles made history on Wednesday by playing a home game without any fans in the ballpark. Chris Davis made ballpark history by hitting his sixth Eutaw Street home run at Camden Yards.

Davis is now tied with Luke Scott for the most Eutaw Street homers and passes Rafael Palmeiro, who had five Eutaw Street home runs.

Chris Davis tied Jim Gentile on the Orioles' single-season home run list Wednesday night with his 46th round tripper of the season. Davis (2013) and Gentile (1961) both rank third on that list, three homers behind Frank Robinson (49 HR in 1966) and four homers behind Brady Anderson (50 HR in 1996).

The Washington Nationals franchise has made its mark on Eutaw Street. Two of the three longest Eutaw Street home runs in Camden Yards history have been hit by Henry Rodriguez (443 feet) and Adam Dunn (442 feet), playing for the Expos and Nationals, respectively.

Brady Anderson's first Eutaw Street home run in 1996 came amidst a career year for power in which he hit 50 home runs, twice as many as any other season, and posted his best totals for RBI (110), slugging percentage (.637) and OPS (1.034) for the wild card Orioles. Two years later, it was a different story.

If you've watched an Orioles broadcast, you know how difficult it can be to determine where a Camden Yards home run will land once it sails off in the direction of the out-of-town scoreboard. A safe phrase to use, some version of which has been employed regularly by the home broadcast team, is "that one might reach Eutaw Street."

Eric Thames

Toronto\'s Eric Thames hit the 58th Eutaw Street home run Tuesday night, a third-inning blast off Orioles right-hander Tommy Hunter that one-hopped the Warehouse. Thames is the first player to reach Eutaw Street since the Yankees\' Nick Swisher did so, also against Hunter, on Aug. 26, 2011.

Thames is the third Blue Jay to reach Eutaw Street - Carlos Delgado was the first on June 21, 1998, followed by Eric Hinske on Aug. 22, 2004.
