*Mickey was known to use any bat that felt good at the time. For example,  he hit his 500th home run with Joe Pepitone's bat.
**Computerized projection. A mathematical projection found the lower limit to be 620 feet. 
***Hit in an exhibition game. In the same game Mickey hit another 600 plus foot job right-handed 
that landed on top of a three-story house six houses down the street from the ballpark.
