There is no evidence whatsoever based on homerun data that any such effect exists.

Its been floating around so long now that even Yankees fans think it's real, but I don't where it came from.

Yes Yankee Stadium has a short porch and there are occasional lucky homers. But I just don't see where the right field seats are sucking in balls like a vacuum. Never bought into it.
