Ah.  The internet makes revising history extremely difficult.
I'm pretty sure that was a conventional home run.  Jorge Sosa, 8th inning, Sept 4 2006

I seem to recall reading in the Straight Dope that altitude is good for an extra 40' at the point in CF at Coors.  Presumably that would assume all kinds of things like equal pitch speed, bat speed, trajectory, etc etc.  But with 20% less atmospheric pressure, 10% more distance seems more-or-less reasonable.  Anyways, Morse's hit looked like it would have come straight down at the center fielder at home.

They do offset significantly with the humidor, which reduces the flight distance of a batted ball.

This sounds like excellent dissertation material.

Doesn't MDS need a dissertation topic? He could use his mad math skillz on this!
