monstrous moonshine

tiger stadium (before its abandonment) saw exactly 11,111 home runs, the last a right field, rooftop grand slam by detroit's robert fick as the last hit in the last game played there.

11,111 is a semiprime number, the product of 41 and 271. if read as binary, it is 31, a prime number. 41 is one of exactly 15 supersingular primes (31 and 47 being others) and a centered square number. 271 is a cuban prime, a centered hexagonal number, and the sum of eleven consecutive primes (7 + 11 + 13 + 17 + 19 + 23 + 29 + 31 + 37 + 41 + 43).

these things seem significant, although i don't know what most of them mean, and am not familiar with elementary group theory, much like the stick figure on the left (speaking, as we were, of gooses).
