    Right-fielder David Justice went back to the wall and watched the ball sail over the fence for a game winning home-run.

    Please explain this sentence. (Particularly the bold words)

    Re: home-run

    In baseball, when the batter hits the ball so far that no one in the outfield can catch it, and the batter is able to run to all four bases without being tagged, that is called a "home run." Usually a home run is hit so hard that the ball actually flies over one of the walls of the ball park, which is referred to as being hit "over the fence."

    Here is an example of a home run being hit over the fence.
