    During yesterday’s game between the New York Yankees and the Toronto Blue Jays, Yanks third baseman Casey McGehee hit a towering fly ball that soared approximately 370 feet through the air in left field at the Rogers Center.  Usually that would be enough to earn McGehee a trip around the bases, but on this occasion […]
