Hmmm…if the baseball has been redesigned, can MLB any longer compare historic stats?

“Justin Verlander Says MLB Is Juicing Baseballs To Goose Up Offense”

“Part of baseball’s power surge comes down to a more aerodynamic ball…Several physical changes to the ball have been observed and measured…and the spike in home run totals is pronounced enough that Manfred himself was forced to concede that the new ball probably produces less drag in flight.”

We quit watching Major League baseball, during the ’70s walkout-fest, but, still…

Can you compare a batter’s Home-Run record BEFORE they made the ball more aerodynamic to any Home-Run record after? Or, is it no big deal?
