      There sure were a lot of games played that day, and 48 homers hit. Eleven of them were hit in day games, and the Dodgers-Angels game was played at 10:05 EDT, so there was competition from one of the other night games played on June 12, 1999. Also, O’Neill did not have the Yankees only homer that day; Bernie homered in the first and Brosius homered in the fifth. There were a lot of homers hit in the third and fourth innings of the various night games, so it’s still a guess who had the actual 200K Homer.

      I’ve estimated that the 250K Homer will come on September 7.
