Birdie Tebbetts wrote an article for the Atlantic in 1949 while playing for the Red Sox. Therein, he talks about all sorts of things, including this:

I believe Ted [Williams] would break Babe Ruth's record of sixty home runs in a single season if he were playing at ____, ____, or ___, where the right-field barriers are short. Fenway Park's short left-field wall (315 feet from the plate) is a haven for right-handed batters, but it takes a good poke to get a homer to right.

Fill in the blanks: in which three stadiums does Tebbetts think the Splendid Splinter would have broken the Babe's record?

Got it in one! Either you really know your ballparks, or you read that article more than 50 years ago... :-D
