Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton routinely hit balls that would be out of Yellowstone. Also, there’s a great twitter feed, ‘would it dong,’ which tweets after every HR hit in the season and says how many parks (if any others) the HR would have left. It also says if a long double or out just hit in one stadium would have been a HR in others.

I went to a couple of Royals games at Yankee stadium in 2017. Ten home runs in the two games (five by each team). My guess was that three of them would have gotten out in Kansas City. That's more dramatic than the normal ratio, but there are reasons besides spending that the Yankees tend to have guys near the top of the league in home runs. (They also play a lot of divisional games in Toronto, Boston, and Baltimore - tiny parks.)

Some constructive criticism: I wouldn't include grand slam/salami, because that can only occur when the bases are loaded (an announcer wouldn't use that slang term otherwise). Also, an upper decker is a specific type of home run, just like an out-of-the-parker, so it shouldn't be included. And a walk-off is a hit that results in a game-winning run (not necessarily a home run). You're also missing big fly, shot, moon shot, gone deep, tater, goner, yard work, etc.
