The New York Daily News compared the new Yankee Stadium to Candlestick Park. Even after only week's worth of games the players have noticed the new stadium is more windy than the old park.
The Daily News wrote: There is plenty of reason to believe the 20 home runs hit during the first four games here were more than a statistical oddity.
And as was the case over the weekend series with the Indians, the wind Monday seemed to be blowing toward right field, where 14 of the 20 home runs were hit. Indeed, meteorologists at accuweather.com reported Monday that there is a definite connection between the more airy stadium, even the angle of the seats, and a wind that blows more steadily rather than swirls, according to the Daily News.
It's a situation that has the Yankees' attention, to be sure. After all, they didn't spend $243.5 million to sign CC Sabathia and A.J.Burnett with the idea of having them pitch in a launching pad for home runs.
