The dimensions are the same at the new Stadium. No, really.

The Yankees have played 24 games on the road and hit 32 home runs. They have played 23 games at home and hit 45 home runs. The Yankees are averaging 1.96 homers at home and 1.33 on the road.

Last season, they averaged 1.13 homers at home and 1.08 home runs on the road. The difference was four home runs. This year, so far, the difference is 13. It’ll be 50 by the end of the year at the pace the team is on. And that’s without knowing what will happen in the Bronx once the weather gets warmer and the old Stadium comes down.

Once again, it seems to fair to ask, will anybody take responsibility for this?


Meanwhile, Hit Tracker is a great site to keep up with home runs. According to their stats, Yankee Stadium is producing 3.78 homers a game. Rangers Ballpark and Citizens Bank Park are at 3.00.
