    Cincinnati Reds games and Commerce Clause

    On August 10, 2004, Cincinnati Reds player Adam Dunn hit a 535 foot home run off of Los Angeles Dogers pitcher Jose Lima at Great American Ballpark.

    Great American Ballpark is located on the Ohio River, and the ball actually landed in the river.

    The state boundary is at the shoreline, so the ball left Ohio and entered Kentucky.

    Since it is possible for a ball to cross state lines, can Congress regulate Cincinnati Reds games?

    Been a long time since I heard the name Adam Dunn, pure all or nothing hitter. Whiffed a bunch, but when he made contact look out.

    Yeah, his last MLB game was in 2014.

    Since MLB lets out of the park homerun balls go to anyone that catches them (Wrigley), or finds them, it is not commerce since there is no financial transaction.

    The EPA, however, could regulate it as pollution.

    I'd like to see home plate moved closer to the river so that out of state homers occur more often.

    Then, if I were the Reds broadcaster, my call would be this:

    "That ball is hit deep to center field. It has entered interstate commerce. Congress is in session!"
