After the 1968 baseball season,

the height of the pitcher's mound was lowered from 15 to 10 inches. ERA shot up and so did ball game scores. Sluggers like Clemente, Powell, Robinson, Jackson, McCovey, Aaron, Kilibrew, Carew were hitting; oh, were they hitting.
Batting average went up from .237 to .248, homers from 1995 to 3119, runs per game from 3.42 to 4.07.
