What makes you think there isn't something like that now. It doesn't appear so but you never know with what they can invent in a lab.

I think it's more the ball right now.


I have to admit, that is my first thought as well.

I think the ball is a huge factor right now. There is some credence to the idea that guys are lifting the ball a bit more, but there is no way that helps make up that big of a difference.

I think the juiced ball played a factor back then too. Homeruns league wide spiked pretty much overnight from 1995-1996. I don't think the league all just started using steroids at the same time.

That's very true, but now it seems so much more spread out. Back in the 90s they had multiple players breaking 60, getting 40 was no big deal, 50 was impressive but attainable. Now it just seems like everyone has 10-20 with one guy breaking 50 and only two at the moment with 40

I agree. that's why I said I think it's more the ball. However, never put anything past the chemists. They probably designed a new one not to be so obvious as to get caught by players heads actually increasing size.
