These arent in my possession (I wish) but I have always loved the fact that they exist. They are both in the amusement park section of the Mall of America, Nickelodeon Universe, formerly Knotts Camp Snoopy. Some of you may know that the location where the Mall Of America sits was once where Metropolitan Stadium, the home of the Vikings and Twins, sat. The first picture is a plaque in the floor marking the exact spot of home plate, where it sat in the Old Met. The second, the red chair, is the actual chair, and the exact spot and elevation of where the longest home run in stadium history, and Twins history, hit by Harmon Killebrew on June 3, 1967, landed. The two are 520 feet apart. Also to comemorate the home run, there is a over sized golden glove outside of Gate 34 at Target Field (the new Twins stadium) and it is exactly 520 feet from home plate.
