Did you know that Drew Denson is part of Cincinnati baseball lore (while at high school, he hit a baseball over 500 feet)? Dave Gehring, Drew's Head Coach at Purcell Marian described the event, "Left field had a 30- to 40-foot high fence with homes behind it, and it hit the roof of the second house. At that time nobody thought about measuring it, but obviously it was a no-doubter. People still talk about it."
Drew Denson played in the Minor Leagues from 1984 through 1997. After his playing days, Denson returned to his home town (Cincinnati) where he became a police officer, but was forced to retire prematurely due to a rare blood disease called amyloidosis.
