With his HR this evening, Alex Rodriguez broke Joe DiMaggio’s Yankees team record for most HRs in a season by a RH batter. DiMaggio’s mark was 46 HRs in 1937. It’s a great feat by A-Rod to pass this mark. However, one thing that should be taken into consideration is Yankee Stadium 1937 versus how it measures today:
It’s pretty safe to say that Joe would have had many more than 46 homers in 1937 if Yankee Stadium (then) was the same size that it is today.
