New Stadium a launching pad?

There have been 34.5 innings played at the new Stadium and 17 home runs have been hit.

That’s far too small a sample size to draw any conclusions from. But that does seem like a lot. Is the wind howling through those open concourses? Is there some sort of wind tunnel toward right field? And this in cold weather, too.

The details:

April 3 vs. Cubs, exhibition game: 3 homers: Cano, Matsui, Ransom.

April 4 vs. Cubs, exhibition game: 5 homers: Soriano; Jeter, Teixeira (2), Duncan.

April 16 vs Indians: 3 homers: Sizemore, Martinez; Posada.

April 17 vs. Indians: 6 homers: DeRosa; Damon, Teixeira, Cabrera, Jeter, Cano.
