What marine layer?

O_O Those home runs were HUGE.  Just got back from the king's game and watched the replays, that hamilton home run is one of the longest shots I've seen in this stadium, and Trout and Pujols both got theirs over the bullpen.  Impressive.  

 

I just looked at the ESPN summary.  All 4 Halo home runs were over 400 feet and 3 of them were over 430.  When is the last time that happened?

Very nice, and great pitching.

"The mist and moisture felt good coming out of my hand, but it was just one of those flukey games; a couple 'seeing eye' 430 foot homers when I concentrating on covering right field, and the next thing I knew even Hamilton was sending one out. Oh well, some nights you just have to tip your cap and turn the page. . ."     Marine Layer.

I guess it took the night off.

 

Very possible.

 

The marine layer is not necessarily always going to be looming around the stadium, it really depends on the weather and how it changes over the course of the day, especially when the sun starts to go down. 

 

Here's a photo of Orange County when the marine layer doesn't take the night off (this was taken Monday night). You can see how the humidity and air density just sweeps over the city miles in from the ocean, and even reaches Angel stadium. You can see the stadium lights in the photo, they are just above the green arrow.

humidity actually decreases air density so balls will fly farther when it's humid. and the marine layer exists but it's hardly ever-present.

it's not the humidity of the air that has the greatest effect, it's the temperature.  The temp drop effect is disproportionally greater than the increase in density from the increasing humidity of the air.  The net is an increase in air density and increased drag force or friction.
