Yankee Stadium HR mark set
NEW YORK -- The Yankee Stadium record for home runs in a season has been broken with eight games to spare.
The only years 200 homers were hit at the old Yankee Stadium were 2004, 2000 (209) and 2005 (206), according to STATS LLC.
Yankee Stadium topped the majors in homers entering the night -- Rangers Ballpark was second at 197. The major league record appears safe: 303 homers were hit at Denver's Coors Field in 1999.
