Are You Garage-parking Challenged?
On this day in 1932, Babe Ruth pointed to center field in the fifth inning of game three of the World Series; he then parked a home run right where pointed. If you’re always pulling into your garage too far when parking your car, and it’s too close to the wall to get the door opened, here’s how you can enter and, like the Babe, park it front and center — right where you want it — every time. First, carefully position your car in the garage precisely where you want it. Then put an eyehook in a rubber ball. Suspend the ball from another eyehook in the ceiling, carefully positioned so the hanging ball just touches the windshield dead center (where the rearview mirror is mounted). Every time you park thereafter, line up your car and pull in until the ball touches that designated spot. And that’s the On The House tip for today.
