In the early days of the game (1870's-1880's)most home runs were inside the park, many ballparks didn't even have outfield fences and it's unlikely that inside the park homers were considered a separate stat from homers hit over a fence,a fairly rare occurence in the early days of the game.

The oldest major league ball park is Fenway Park, home to the Boston Red Sox who first played there in 1912. Next is Wrigley Field home of the Chicago Cubs. Their first game at Wrigley was in 1914. The third oldest park jumps ahead 50+ years to 1962 and the Los Angeles Dodgers' Dodger Stadium.
