In baseball, a moonshot is referred to as a home run that travels a great distance vertically. The term "Moonshot" was coined by MLB Hall of Fame former Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully, describing high home runs by Wally Moon.  The term would later be referenced in newspapers as "Moon Shots". Moon's home runs at the L.A. Coliseum gained (perhaps overstated) recognition for being to the opposite field, where the distance of the fence was merely 251 feet (77 m) from home plate, but towered 42 feet (13 m) high - for comparison, Fenway Park's famous Green Monster is 37 feet (11 m) tall.
