"When Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon, he and all the space scientists were puzzled by an unidentifiable white object. I knew immediately what it was. That was a home run ball hit off me in 1937 by Jimmie Foxx." Lefty Gomez Perhaps no man in history, including Babe Ruth, ever hit the ball harder than Jimmie Foxx. A Maryland farm boy who developed an Atlas-like physique hoisting milk cans, Foxx was the second player in baseball history to break the 500 home run plateau. And if not for screens erected in St. Louis Sportsmans’ Park and Cleveland’s Municipal Stadium following Babe Ruth’s epic 60-home run season in 1927, Foxx would have shattered The Bambino’s mark in 1932. Foxx smashed 58 home runs that season, with eight additional balls bouncing off the screens (5 in St. Louis and 3 in Cleveland) that would have given “The Beast” a 66 home run season. Foxx always seemed to play his best when the spotlight was hottest.
