Top HR Hitters since the All-Star Break

If you happened to attend an MLB game in the last two months that featured any one of the above hitters, you had a good chance to see a HR.  These sluggers have hit the most home runs per AB in the league.

While Atlanta's Dan Uggla tops the list, Lance Berkman of the Cardinals has put the most distance under his HRs in the second half.  His six long balls have averaged 430 feet.


Opposite Andy

Andy Pettitte allows more home runs at home than on the road since the new Yankee Stadium opened in 2009. The biggest reason is that right-handed batters can take him deep the opposite way in The Bronx.

Andy Pettitte Home Runs allowed on the road to RHB, 2009-2010.

As you can see, it's rare for right-handed batters to go deep the other way against Andy on the road. At home it's a different matter.

If a Rangers hitter goes deep the other way against Pettitte Monday night, you can blame the stadium.
