No player hit a Eutaw Street home run in 2010. It was only the second time in Camden Yards history that fans could stroll down Eutaw Street during baseball season without heeding the club’s advice to “Watch Out For Batted Balls” (photo credit: WallyG, Flickr).
The other Eutaw Street homerless drought occurred in 1993. Eutaw Street remained untouched by cowhide from May 23, 1992, to April 24, 1994, when Ken Griffey Jr. hit a 438-foot homer to right field. Griffey’s blast was the only Eutaw Street home run of the 1994 season.
Batters reached Eutaw Street during game action four times in 2009. Luke Scott hit the two most recent “Bronze Bombs” on July 11, 2009, and Sept. 1, 2009. Scott’s four Eutaw Street home runs are the second-most behind Rafael Palmeiro, who hit five in four different seasons.
The 1993 Orioles team ERA was 4.32. The 2010 Orioles team ERA was 4.59.
