1. Of the thirteen upper deck homers in the history of Three Rivers Stadium six were hit to rightfield. Willie Stargell did it four times.. Mark Whitten once. Who was the only other batter to blast one into the rightfield upper deck? He played for the Pirates.

2. Six batters hit the seven leftfield upper deck shots at Three Rivers. Only one of the six was Pirate. Who was he?

I am pretty sure No. 2 is Bob Robertson.

No. 1, not sure.

I'm not cheating on these questions either and i also believe it was Giles. I remember Hydzu doing it and Giles is the only other one that played in my era and i don't remember him doing it.

as for question #1 i know they tarped it off in 1993 so it had to be before that. I know the ones Stargell hit they had the seats painted where they landed.But i do know the answer to this without cheating and i even know the date.It was exactly 2 weeks before i was born on July 12th 1987 and it was hit my Bobby Bonilla. I remember my dad telling me about that when i was real little. Bobby was always one of his favorite players.

and for question #2 i have no idea i just remember Denny Negle got the most upperdeck shots hit off of him there and that Frank Thomas had that one that went over 500 feet in the home run derby.

Yes, Bobby Bonilla and Bob Robertson are the answers.

As for the first question I forgot the answer. :? Can't remember where I read about it. Probably is Brian Giles. I was a HUGE fan of Slaught so I may have included him because I think of him often.
