The Elon Musk of Baseball: How Startups Hit Grand Slams

Picture this. It's the fifth inning of Game 3 of the World Series, and it's 1932. The Chicago Cubs are playing the New York Yankees at Wrigley Field. Who steps up to the plate? The greatest baseball player of all time Babe Ruth. The score is 4-4. He takes one strike. The Cubs from their dugout are heckling, and the fans are getting into it. Babe holds up his hand and points to center field. That's where the ball is going. Babe hits hard. It's going, going, high into the center field stands. It's a home run.
