The Eutaw Street Chronicles - All-Time Bronze Bombers

The good folks over at Camden Chat got the run-around recently when they attempted to track down a list of all-time Eutaw Street home runs. I tried finding that information back in December but likewise had no luck, so I went over to Camden Yards and photographed all of the bronze baseballs. You can see the full set of photos on Flickr (note: the 2008 baseballs are not included because they hadn't been added yet).

I've also started chronicling the stories behind each baseball as part of the Roar from 34 series "The Eutaw Street Chronicles."

MASN's Kate Wheeler explained how the baseballs are installed.

Anyone ever done it hitting right handed? It doesn't look like it, but want to know for sure.
