17 Years Ago in Cubs History, Glenallen Goes Rooftop
17 years ago, Glenallen Hill of the Chicago Cubs blasts an epic homerun out of Wrigley Field.
The 2000 Chicago Cubs weren't exactly the Cubs of today. Another struggling Cubs team, with the bleachers 3/4 full.
The early 2000's was a very interesting time in Major League Baseball. The entire league turned a blind eye to the fact that baseball players looked like NFL Middle Linebackers. MLB basically, allowed steroid use. There wasn't a penalty for using , so players used and the homerun number grew and grew.
So let's go to May 11th, 2000. A cloudy rainy day at Wrigley Field, and one of Major League Baseballs "roid monsters", Glenallen Hill hit a homer that was estimated to go 500 plus feet. The shot landed on a rooftop and years later Glennallen Hill admitted that he was taking a certain substance.
