Johnny Damon and the New Yankee Stadium

Johnny Damon has now hit 20 home runs this year, only the third time he has done that in his 15-year career (2004, 2006) and has a slugging percentage of .517 (best of his career). His career high was 24 (2006) and he has over 50 games to go. It looks like his power surge is due almost entirely to playing in the new Bandbox in the Bronx.
