The park


The Park и совсем не развлечений. Короткая рецензия, на короткую игру

  • Полное название: The Park
  • Дата выхода: 2015
  • Локализация: нет
  • Жанр: хоррор, интерактивная новелла
  • На чем можно поиграть: ПК
  • Мультиплеер: нет
  • Кооператив: нет

У Funcom уже давно дела идут не лучшим образом. Свои ММОшки быстро стареют и теряют игроков, в то время, как на сцену выползают более современные «онлайки», только ускоряющие этот процесс. Серьёзных проектов у студии давно не было и уж хоррора от них я ожидать ну никак не мог. А вот получается, что зря. Встречайте — The Park.

Да-а, много про эту игру не скажешь. И не потому, что о ней реально нечего написать, или к примеру, что вкусненького там всего-то на два часа с хвостиком. Просто The Park — это исключительно одноразовая и немного личная игра, состоящая почти что целиком из несложного линейного повествования, подкреплённого сильным звуковым и визуальным содержанием. Слишком мало у неё припасено сюрпризов, чтобы выбалтывать их в рецензии. Всё нужно увидеть и почувствовать самому.

Будь уверен, мамочка тебя любит…

Мрачная история The Park берёт своё начало из вселенной The Secret World, созданной самими же Funcom. И расскажет нам о матери, потерявшей своего любимого сына в огромном ночном парке развлечений. История жутковатая, но, к сожалению, абсолютно не оригинальная. После пяти минут знакомства, искушенный в жанре игрок почти безошибочно расставит всё по своим местам.

Маленькая оговорка: если вы не изучаете все хорроры подряд (как ваш покорный слуга) и не являетесь заядлым киноманом, то есть все шансы быть как минимум удивлённым.

Собственно, и подаётся сюжет не лучшим образом. Игрока снова тянут за ручку и тыкают носом во всё самое интересное. Нам не стесняются подкидывать записки и листочки по пути следования, от которых, наверно, уже все смертельно устали. Второй важный момент — история также частично подаётся через главную героиню. Она постоянно комментирует свои поиски и порой вываливая сразу увесистый шмат сюжетных спойлеров, лишающих подбор записок какого бы то ни было смысла. Это, в общем-то, главная проблема истории. Мы не находим ответы, мы просто отыскиваем подтверждения своим теориям.

Многие находят The Park похожей на Among the Sleep. От части так оно и есть.

Зато в плане атмосферы The Park может поспорить с лучшими из лучших. Если в начале игры кромешного мрака и застывших в темноте силуэтов клоуна-белочки ещё не достаточно для того, чтобы изрядно понервничать и «подпустить кирпичей», то в финале все с лихвой компенсируется кровавыми коврами по стенам и куклами, подвешенными за ноги. С работой отлично справились не только дизайнеры и художники, но и звукорежесёры. От скрипов и зловещего хохота кровь в жилах стынет. Конечно же, демонический парка из «Пейнкиллера» у меня на особом счету, но и этот я точно запомню.

ИМХО, атмосфера — это единственное, что в моём представлении получилось у разработчиков передать почти безупречно. Ещё до конца не будучи уверенным, ждут ли тебя опасности, порою слишком эмоциональная реакция на силуэт с красными горящими глазами во мраке, доставляет больше самых шустрых маньяков с ножницами. Ну и прокатиться на американских горках, вдруг на подъёме заметив краем глаза, что кто-то сзади тоже держится вместе с тобой за ручку — это, я вам скажу, «кирпичненько».

По тегам: The Park игра, ужастик, хоррор, рецензия

Игровой процесс, конечно же, скучноватый. Собственно, чего ждать от обычной интерактивной новеллы? Вы ходите, ищите своего сына, покрикивая правой кнопкой мыши, (а можно и не покрикивать, дело ваше) и собираете события по крупице, постепенно составляю полную картину происходящего (произошедшего?). Всё плавно и почти без резкой смены курса, хотя, порой, игра способна встряхнуть расслабившегося игрока. Рассчитывать на то, что вам подкинут загадку или заставят искать ключи — тоже не стоит. Единственное, что нужно делать в The Park с завидной регулярность — разглядывать предметы, вращая их в руках и читать треклятые записки. Для чего? Как всегда, для поиска смысла, ну и в крайних случаях — продвижения по сюжету. Игровой процесс можно смело ровнять с Nevermind или Kholat, с легкими оговорками, конечно.

Создавалась игра на движке ue4, поэтому вы вполне можете ожидать хорошей картинки и, к сожалению, не самого высокого fps. Не всё в визуальной части безупречно — особенно режут глаза убогие деревья и спрайтовый туман по краям, — но когда вы оказываетесь в закрытом помещении, всё сразу же преображается и детали окружения получают заслуженную детализацию и глубину. Слабые машины, правда, скорее всего взвоют, а может и задымят. The Park не пощадит ни старой видео карты, ни малых объёмов оперативной памяти.

Но, в принципе, игра не требует 60-ти стабильных кадров ежесекундно. Ну а уж 30-ку сделать можно почти на любой машине, которая ещё не запускала игры с палеолита.

Итого…

Главные проблемы The Park кроются даже не в том, что геймплея в игре, как такового, всего-то на пару несчастных часов, а экшен в меню и вовсе не входит. Это мы проходили, бывает и на полчасика очень вкусно. Основная проблема кроется в нежелании авторов шагать по ту сторону жанра и думать своей головой. Нас нескончаемо потчуют записками, водят за ручку и всё время норовят намекнуть на финал, разрушая целостность повествования. Конечно, хорошая атмосфера сглаживает торчащие во все стороны углы, давая больше острых ощущений и помогая лучше проникнуться трагедией в контексте происходящего ужаса. Но этого слишком мало, чтобы говорить о каком бы то ни было успехе.

The Park неприлично короткая. Красивая, атмосферная и местами жутковатая, но очень короткая. За ту сумму, что просят разработчики, можно скупить лучшее из инди-хорроров в Steam, или же зарядить по-крупному — на подводный ужастик SOMA, способный отработать всю сумму до копейки с утроенным усердием.

Ну и для нашего русскоговорящего игрока The Park способна отвадить ещё и полным отсутствием перевода. И говорить не нужно, что без родной речи и даже субтитров, впитать историю для многих будет абсолютно нереально.

О маме и не только: рецензия на The Park - Статьи

Во многим непонятой и непринятой онлайновой ролевой игре The Secret World есть огромная масса интересных квестов и достопримечательностей. Некоторые известны почти каждому, кто начинал в нее играть, просто потому что они находятся на первых картах. Один из примеров— заброшенный парк аттракционов на Соломоновом острове, который находится на второй по счету локации, куда попадает игрок. С парком связано несколько прикольных квестов, и сам он весьма атмосферный: такой классический, побитый временем, как из фильма ужасов. Есть там одно задание, где в процессе нужно прокатиться на американских горках. Оно запоминается всем, потому что в этот момент TheSecret World превращается в реальный хоррор и начинает шугать игрока. Именно эти место и квест, видимо, и стали вдохновением для симулятора ходьбы ThePark, действие которого тоже разворачивается во вселенной TheSecret World.

К счастью, Funcom хватило такта не использовать карту из ММО и переделывать ее под адвенчуру — локация была создана с нуля. Начинается все с того, что мы обнаруживаем мать-одиночку вместе со своим сыном у старого парка аттракционов. Внезапно обнаруживается, что сын где-то потерял плюшевого мишку. Мать отправляется его искать, а сын тем временем забегает в парк, и женщине ничего не остается, как последовать за ним. Меньше чем через минуту происходит странное: день резко сменяется ночью, а мать отправляется гулять по главному кошмару своей жизни.

The Park, очевидно, создавалась с двумя целями: заработать немножко денег во время Хэллоуина и лишний раз попиарить The Secret World, которая и раньше не могла похвастаться большим количеством игроков. Игрок даже может получить бонусы для ММО. Но вот стоит ли тратить на саму бродилку 9 долларов — вопрос не самый простой.

Как игра она дает минимум интерактива: можешь ходить, бегать и нажимать на активные точки, чтобы читать записки и рассматривать всякие вещи. Многие записки, впрочем, бесполезны — все важное для сюжета героиня произносит вслух. The Park ближе всего к произведениям The Chinese Room — это, по сути, длинный коридор с кофе-паузами на аттракционы и закадровым нарративом, превращающим игру, скорее, в интерактивную новеллу. Долгое время она реально похожа на мрачный вариант Dear Esther, где разработчики периодически пугают игрока, а под конец начинается настоящая Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs: кровища течет по стенам, пол тоже в кровище, двери громко хлопают, качаются жуткие тени, а вдалеке ходят какие-то фигуры.

The Park действительно хорошо пугает. Не то чтобы игра проходится целиком в состоянии ужаса, но она умело доводит до того состояния, когда ты уже никуда не хочешь идти. А надо. Слава богу, что дорога только одна — вперед, так что выбора нет и можно просто катиться по рельсам. Особенно это касается финальной части — там с тропы никуда не сойдешь (хотя проходить одну и ту же квартиру двадцать раз надоедает). До этого, конечно, есть иллюзия свободы: можно сесть на какой-нибудь аттракцион, а можно и не сесть.

Собственно говоря, основная часть игры — это история о том, как женщина искала ребенка в пустом ночном парке, вспоминая радости и печали материнства и время от времени катаясь на жутких аттракционах. Плюс, встречаются неплохие параллели с одной из сказок братьев Гримм.

Правда, аттракционов немного, а сама игра длится час. Всего один час — за 9 долларов. Даже Dear Esther длится полтора-два часа. Причем, в The Park отсутствует даже красочная графика, на которой часто делают упор создатели симуляторов ходьбы. Картинка выглядит симпатично, но не более. Нельзя сказать, что сценарий чем-то особенно хорош. Это простая маленькая новелла, из которой, разумеется, можно вынести какие-то уроки. Но в целом она ничем не лучше любого проходного квеста в The Secret World. В «Эстер» история тоже была так себе, но все спасал красивый, очень эмоциональный и неожиданный финал. В «Парке» финал тоже внезапный, но это лишь потому, что такую авторскую жестокость сложность предугадать. Красоты в нем нет, изящества, которое должно быть в любом хорошем твисте, нет и подавно. У некоторых игроков он наверняка вызовет только одну реакцию: what the fuck? У других разовьется синдром поиска глубокого смысла и они начнут строить теории, одну офигительней другой.

Игры разума. Обзор The Park

Внезапный анонс и скорый релиз The Park вызвал у игроков (да и у прессы тоже) смутное подозрение, что игра окажется не очень хорошей. Студия-разработчик Funcom уже длительное время находится в «подвешенном» состоянии, сокращая штат и теряя лучших людей из-за убыточных ММО Age of Conan и The Secret World. Как раз по вселенной последней и сделан The Park, поэтому спин-офф можно расценивать как попытку подправить финансовое положение компании: за два часа геймплея у игрока просят пол тысячи рублей. Стоит ли игра этих денег?
Отец сожрал меня, мать извела меня
Разработчики честно выполнили, что обещали: они создали двухчасовой психологический триллер в декорациях ночного парка развлечений. История вращается вокруг Ллорейн - молодой матери, которая привозит сына в Атлантик Парк покататься на аттракционах и весело провести время. Но вернуться домой им не суждено - сын теряет своего плюшевого мишку и сбегает обратно. Мать отправляется на поиски. Наступает темная летняя ночь, зажигаются фонари, и каждая тень в парке начинает казаться живой. Пустые аттракционы похожи на скелеты древних зверей, а загадочное ожившее пугало ведет вас по ночным тропам все дальше и дальше. Ллорейн громко зовет своего сына, и в одиночестве на неё начинают накатывать жуткие воспоминания.

Вскоре становится ясно, что с девушкой не все в порядке точно так же, как и с парком.

Атмосфера у The Park отличная, а история напоминает фильм «Бабадук», который использует тему взаимоотношений матери и сына, а далее рассказывает о потаенных страхах и желаниях, которые порой сводят с ума. Это внутренние демоны, которые питаются слабостями, и они действительно опасны для психики. В игре все это подается через монологи главной героини, которые отлично озвучены - ее интонация постепенно меняется; ее волнение, гнев и ненависть передаются игроку. Первый аттракцион, на котором нам дают прокатиться, задает тон всей истории - в нем предстоит проплыть в лодке по пещере, на скалах которой покажут иллюстрации из сказки о Гензеле и Грете и расскажут историю о плохих родителях, несчастных ведьмах и каннибализме. Жуткая история, после которой игроку становится все понятно - далее его ждет страшная семейная тайна и неожиданный сюжетный поворот. Жаль только, что игра так не считает и продолжает по ложечке скармливать историю через разбросанные записки и газетные вырезки. Это очень похоже на Kholat: есть определенные сюжетные зоны, между которыми можно свободно перемещаться. Именно так и проходит первая половина истории - мы бродим по парку, преследуем вечно убегающего сына и катаемся на аттракционах, пока Ллорейн что-то рассказывает о себе.

За исключением записок, которые будут интересны только фанатам The Secret World, вся история подается исключительно от лица главной героини и монстра в шляпе, который постоянно подбивает девушку совершать плохие поступки. Больше в парке делать нечего - скримеры шаблонны, а звуковые эффекты стандартны для игр подобного плана: радио-помехи на заднем фоне и зловещий смех где-то вдалеке. Интересней становится через час: как только мы находим таблетки и катимся по американским горкам, психическое состояние главной героини совсем «расшатывается» и начинается полный бед-трип.

Бесконечный кошмар
Мы попадаем во вторую часть игры, которая сильно похожа на P.T.: снова и снова проходим по квартире Ллорейн, которая с каждым разом меняется - на стенах появляется кровь, на полках стоят таблетки, а в печи готовится кукла ребенка. Это, пожалуй, самый мощный эпизод, который держит в напряжении и пугает куда как сильней, чем скримеры в парке. Визуально все очень здорово - игра создана на движке Unreal Engine 4, рисующем просто завораживающую картинку, кадры из которой постоянно хочется «скриншотить».

Но полюбоваться не дают, и очень скоро наступает финал, который ожидаем и не вызывает ничего, кроме легкого недоумения: «И это все?». Да, к сожалению, это все. Несмотря на то, что концовки здесь две, обе весьма туманны и не дают никаких четких ответов. Конечно, для мистической истории это не важно, но отсутствие геймплея подразумевало хотя бы нетривиальный финал. Всю игру вас заботливо ведут по рельсам сюжета, не давая возможности куда-либо свернуть. Даже Among the Sleep предоставляла куда больше возможностей для взаимодействия на ее небольших уровнях - здесь же за ощущением простора кроется та самая маленькая комната Ллорейн, из которой нет выхода.

Итого
Funcom показывают себя как отличные ремесленники: они собрали в одной игре все лучшее, что можно было взять из жанра инди-хорроров и аккуратно перенести в свою вселенную. Забавно, но в самой ММО есть куда более интересные квесты, чем The Park, и это идет в большой минус последнему: можно же было сделать лучше. Но не срослось. Публика ругает игру за избитый сюжет и шаблоны, но абсолютно забывает о том, что качественных психологических хорроров на PC не так уж и много. Пускай The Park невозможно воспринимать в отрыве от исходной вселенной, но Funcom впервые со времен Dreamfall: The Longest Journey создала оффлайновую игру. Это интересное решение, ведь тогда, в 2006-ом году, студия обещала больше не делать однопользовательские игры из-за пиратства. Сейчас они вернулись и создают контент для своей публики - фанатов The Secret World, ведь бонусом здесь идут различные «плюшки» для неё. Если у вас есть эта MMO, то вопрос о покупке The Park можно считать решенным - однозначно да. Для всех остальных приобрести игру имеет смысл на новогодней распродаже в этом году: ценник скорее всего упадет до умеренных двухсот рублей, а любители к этому времени успеют подготовить русскую локализацию. Но даже так кроме атмосферы и красивой графики от проекта ждать многого не стоит. Если вам больше и не надо, то добро пожаловать в Парк.

Понравилось:- Атмосфера;- Графика.

Не понравилось:- Сюжет;- Отсутствие геймплея;- Продолжительность.

    T in the Park - Wikipedia

    T in the Park festival is a major Scottish music festival that has been held almost annually since 1994 (the event did not take place in 2017). It is named after its main sponsor, the brewing company Tennents. The event was originally held at Strathclyde Park, Lanarkshire but was held at the disused Balado airfield, Kinross-shire from 1997 to 2014. In 2015 the festival moved to Strathallan Castle, Strathallan, Perthshire. Originally a two-day event, the festival became a three-day event in 2007. Promoted by DF Concerts, the event attracts up to 255,000 people, along with 70,000 campers. The future of the festival is uncertain. The 2017 event was cancelled due to problems at the 2016 event. It was officially replaced with the TRNSMT festival which takes place on the same weekend at Glasgow Green. The 2017 event was a success with a follow-up for 2018 in the pipeline, meaning that T in the Park is "not looking likely" for 2018.[1]

    History[edit]

    The festival was founded in 1994 by Stuart Clumpas and Geoff Ellis,[2] as part of a joint venture between DF Concerts and Tennent's Lager with some help from Irish promotions company MCD Productions.[3] Stuart Clumpas left as an organiser in 2001, selling his commercial interests in the concert.[4][5]

    Current festival director Geoff Ellis was involved from the start. Ellis came to Scotland in 1992 to manage King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow. He organised the first T in the Park festival in 1994 with a smattering of bands playing to 17,000 people at its original site at Strathclyde Park, Lanarkshire.[6] The festival was held there for three years until 1997, where it was held at the disused Balado airfield, Kinross-shire. After moving to Balado the festival grew larger and by 2003, the festival was attracting up to 255,000 people; 110,000 over the weekend.[3]

    The festival was originally a two-day event until 2007, when the Friday became a mainstay event for live music. However, the 2007 festival was criticised by many festival-goers who missed acts on the Friday due to huge traffic jams of 10 miles on the A91 and A977 leading to Kinross.[7] To prevent a repeat of the traffic chaos, in 2008 organisers allowed a limited number of campers to pitch up on the Thursday in order to cut the number of cars on the roads on the Friday.[8] By extending the festival over a full three days, it began to grow rapidly, becoming the second-largest greenfield festival in the United Kingdom, and the fifth-largest in the world in terms of attendance, with over 85,000 people on site everyday.[9]

    As of 2013, it attracted up to 255,000 people over three days, drawing fans from across Britain and Europe.[6] According to DF Concerts, 20% of the crowd is made up of visitors from outside Scotland, with about 2% attending from overseas.[10] In recent years, the festival has shared much of its line-up with Oxegen, a festival that takes place on the same weekend in County Kildare, Ireland. Acts usually play T in the Park one day and Oxegen the next, or vice versa. In an attempt to boost ticket sales, the 2014 festival saw an extension of the acts' duration on stage. On the Friday, the acts were scheduled to start around lunchtime as opposed to 5 pm; and the Saturday headliners to finish at 1 am.[11]

    Move from Balado to Strathallan[edit]

    The 2014 festival was the last to take place at the Balado site. Despite having run on the same site since 1997, safety concerns were expressed about the Forties Pipeline, which runs directly underneath the former Balado airfield.[12]

    In 2015 the festival moved 20.54 miles to the Strathallan Castle Estate in the neighbouring county of Perthshire.[13] The 2016 event was marred by the deaths of three festival-goers and reports of anti-social behaviour problems at the campsite. This led festival bosses to cancel the 2017 event, making the festival's future uncertain.[14]

    Brewing[edit]

    Tennents Lager is brewed just 36 hours before T in the Park at the Wellpark Brewery in Glasgow, 44 miles from Balado. Nearly all the lager is brewed specifically for the weekend. More than 3 million pints of lager have been consumed at the festival since 1994.[10]

    An innovative bar-cup recycling scheme was introduced in 2006 paying a 10p deposit on every empty pint container brought back to a designated recycling point.[10]

    1994 festival[edit]

    The first T in the Park was held on Saturday 30 July – Sunday 31 July 1994 at Strathclyde Country park. The site had a capacity for 17,000 people on each of the two days, with just 2000 choosing to camp.[15]

    The Caledonia Stage, was introduced to showcase up and coming new bands. A band called Glass Onion played over the weekend who would later be better known as Travis.

    1995 festival[edit]

    Was held on Saturday 5 August – Sunday 6 August 1995 at Strathclyde Country park. This was the first year there was a sell out on one of the days. Noel Gallagher joined Paul Weller on stage, while Kermit from the Black Grapes' had broken his ankle earlier in the day but refused to go to hospital instead performed with the rest of the band whilst sitting down on the stage.

    The Dance Tent was introduced this year, but no official line was used, it became the Slam Tent in 1997.

    1996 festival[edit]

    Was held on Saturday 13 July – Sunday 14 July 1996, and was the last time at Strathclyde Country park. The Saturday was a sell out for the first time in advance. Radiohead closed the Main Stage on Saturday night and Pulp closing on the Sunday. This was also the year that Keanu Reeves arrived on a shuttle bus to play the festival with his band Dogstar, and Joe Strummer busked in the campsite

    Caledonia Stage was renamed the T Break, where unsigned acts from across Scotland are given a platform to showcase their music at T in the Park. Each year, a panel made up of music industry experts hand-picked 16 artists from over a thousand entries to platform.[16]

Other acts on the bill include Pixies, Ed Sheeran, Paolo Nutini, Paul Weller, The Human League, Pharrell Williams, Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah, Franz Ferdinand, Elbow, James and Charlotte OC.

    T in the Park was granted a late music license for 2014 which allows the music to continue until 1am instead of 12am like previous years. Music on Friday also started earlier this year, with the arena opening at lunch time instead of the regular 5pm start.

    Inside-the-park home run - Wikipedia

    In baseball, an inside-the-park home run is a play where a batter hits a home run without hitting the ball out of the field of play. It is also known as an "in-the-park home run" or "in the park homer". It goes on the batter's record as a hit.

    Discussion[edit]

    To score an inside-the-park home run, the player must touch all four bases (in the order of first, second and third, ending at home plate) before a fielder on the opposing team can tag him out. In Major League Baseball, if the defensive team commits an error during the play, it is not scored as a home run, but rather advancing on an error.[1] Statistically, an inside-the-park home run counts as a regular home run in the player's season and career totals.

    The vast majority of home runs occur when the batter hits the ball beyond the outfield fence on the fly. This is purely a feat of hitting with power, along with a fortuitous flight angle of the ball. The inside-the-park home run has a different character: it combines fast baserunning with a strong hit, usually aided by a lucky bounce of the ball.

    In the early days of Major League Baseball, with outfields more spacious and less uniform from ballpark to ballpark, inside-the-park home runs were common. However, in the modern era, with smaller outfields, the feat has become increasingly rare, happening only a handful of times each season. Today an inside-the-park home run is typically accomplished by a fast baserunner hitting the ball in a direction that bounces far away from the opposing team's fielders. Sometimes (such as Alcides Escobar's inside-the-park homer in the 2015 World Series), the outfielder misjudges the ball or otherwise misplays it, but not so badly that an error is charged.[2][3]

    Major league statistics[edit]

    Of the 154,483 home runs hit between 1951 and 2000, 975 (about 1 in every 158) were inside-the-park. The percentage has dwindled since the increase in emphasis on power hitting which began in the 1920s.

    Rare occurrences[edit]

    • On July 13, 1896, Ed Delahanty of the Philadelphia Phillies hit four home runs in one game (itself an extraordinarily rare feat), two of which were inside-the-park home runs. This event was the only time any homers in a four-homer game were inside-the-park.[6]
    • On April 27, 1949, Pete Milne hit an inside-the-park grand slam for his only career home run. It gave the New York Giants an 11–8 lead over the Brooklyn Dodgers,[7] which was also the final score.[8]
    • On July 25, 1956, Roberto Clemente became the only MLB player to hit a walk-off inside-the-park grand slam in a 9–8 Pittsburgh Pirates win over the Chicago Cubs, at Forbes Field.[9]
    • On October 4, 1986 during a Twins' home game at the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome, Greg Gagne tied a modern-era major league record by hitting two inside-the-park home runs against the Chicago White Sox. Only 18 players in major league history have performed this feat, with Gagne being just the second since 1930. Both home runs were hit off Chicago starting pitcher Floyd Bannister, who also tied a modern-era major league record by allowing two inside-the-park home runs in one game. The Twins went on to win the game, 7–3.[10]
    • On May 3, 1998, in the first inning of a game against the Detroit Tigers, Seattle Mariners catcher Dan Wilson hit an inside-the-park grand slam. This was the first inside-the-park home run in Mariners history.[11][12]
    • On June 17, 2007, Prince Fielder of the Milwaukee Brewers hit a popup to center field that became an inside-the-park home run when Minnesota Twins outfielder Lew Ford lost the ball after it struck a speaker on the ceiling of the Metrodome. Fielder weighed 262 pounds at the time, becoming the third-heaviest player to hit an inside-the-park homer.[13] On June 19, 2008, he hit another inside-the-park-homer at Miller Park in Milwaukee, versus the Toronto Blue Jays.
    • In the 2007 All-Star Game, Ichiro Suzuki became the only player to hit an inside-the-park home run in an All-Star Game,[14] hitting it at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Suzuki, playing for the victorious American League All-Stars, earned Most Valuable Player honors.
    • On April 6, 2009, Emilio Bonifacio of the Florida Marlins became the first player in 41 years to hit an inside-the-park home run on Opening Day, which was also the first home run of Bonifacio's Major League career.[15]
    • On August 18, 2009, Kyle Blanks of the San Diego Padres hit an inside-the-park home run against the Chicago Cubs. Weighing 285 pounds, he became the heaviest player to hit an inside-the-park home run.[16]
    • On July 18, 2010, Jhonny Peralta of the Cleveland Indians hit a three-run inside-the-park home run when Detroit Tigers outfielder Ryan Raburn crashed through the bullpen fence while trying to catch the ball. Peralta was one of the slowest runners then on the Indians' roster, and would be traded to the Tigers ten days later.[17] He took 16.74 seconds to round the bases, which was, at that point in the 2010 season, the slowest of any inside-the-park home run and slower than five regular home run trots.[18]
    • On May 25, 2013, Ángel Pagán of the San Francisco Giants hit an inside-the-park home run at AT&T Park in San Francisco, a tenth inning, two-run walk-off home run, with teammate Brandon Crawford on base. It was the first walk-off inside-the-park home run since 2004, when Rey Sanchez of the Devil Rays hit one, also in the bottom of the tenth inning, also against the Rockies, albeit in a tie game.[19]
    • On May 21, 2014, Kurt Suzuki of the Minnesota Twins hit an inside-the-park home run against the San Diego Padres when the ball glanced off Padres left fielder Seth Smith's glove. He thought it had cleared the wall for a home run and by the time he realized the ball was still in play it was too late.[20]
    • On July 8, 2015, Logan Forsythe of the Tampa Bay Rays hit an inside-the-park home run in the 4th inning against the Kansas City Royals when, in attempting to field the ball, Royals left fielder Alex Gordon injured his groin. Gordon was replaced by Jarrod Dyson, who hit an inside-the-park home run of his own in the 6th inning of the game. Dyson's hit went past Rays left fielder David DeJesus, who, like Gordon, had been injured five years earlier, on July 22, 2010 while playing for the Royals on a play that led to an inside-the-park home run for Derek Jeter.[21]
    • On September 2, 2015, Rubén Tejada of the New York Mets hit the ball down the right-field foul line, under the glove of Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown who, running full speed, flipped over the out-of-play wall in foul territory. Brown was unable to return to field the ball and it rolled to the deep right field fence in Citi Field before it was fielded by Phillies second baseman Cesar Hernández. Kelly Johnson also scored on the play. Brown later left the game with concussion-like symptoms. At 74.5 mph off the bat, it was the softest-hit homerun of the season to that point.[22]
    • On October 27, 2015 Alcides Escobar of the Kansas City Royals hit an inside-the-park home run in Game 1 of the 2015 World Series. It was the first in a World Series game since Mule Haas in the 1929 World Series[2][3] and the first hit by a leadoff batter since Patsy Dougherty did it for the Boston Americans (now Red Sox) in 1903.[23]
    • On April 7, 2016, Jean Segura of the Arizona Diamondbacks hit an inside-the-park home run when Chicago Cubs outfielders Kyle Schwarber and Dexter Fowler collided in left center field. In the collision, Schwarber tore both the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and lateral collateral ligament (LCL) in his left knee, rendering himself unable to play for the rest of the season until he was cleared to bat in the 2016 World Series.[24][25]
    • On September 8, 2017, Michael A. Taylor of the Washington Nationals hit an inside the park grand slam to deep center field off of Jake Thompson of the Philadelphia Phillies to put the Nationals up 6-3 in the bottom of the 3rd inning. Taylor hit a rising line drive which was misjudged by center fielder Odubel Herrera, ending up against the base of the center field fence. Taylor had previously accomplished a similar feat on September 9, 2015, but that one was later ruled a hit on an error by Yoenis Cespedes of the New York Mets.[26]
