May 22, 1963, after the Yankees had blown a 7-0 lead to Kansas City, Mickey Mantle ended the game with an 11th inning blow off Bill Fischer that almost cleared the RF roof at Yankee Stadium.

"The hardest ball I ever hit," Mantle later commented. One physicist estimated the ball would have gone 620 feet if the ball, still rising, had not struck the façade.
