If you look at someone like Ichiro last season, he hit 5 home runs with the Yankees at home in 227 at bats( i'm pretty sure all 5 were at yankee stadium), whereas, outside Yankee Stadium it took him 402 at bats to hit 4.
Well I really don't think you guys wanna see another chart

....but 8 of his 9 of his homeruns last year are gone in Safeco, including 4 of 5 he hit at Yankee Stadium. One of the wall.

You wanna know something funny though? Only 5 of his 9 are gone in Fenway park which is rated as a park that favors hitters in terms of power.
