On the 100th anniversary of Babe Ruth’s historic home run in Tampa, several scholars are asking if it ever went the 587 feet quoted on a billboard in the spot it supposedly landed, near the University of Tampa.

If you were one of 4,300 at Plant Field on April 4, 1919, at what is now UT, you would have seen Babe Ruth, his mammoth swing, and maybe the farthest homer ever hit.
