Righty batter HR against Yankee pitchers circa late 1920s to late 1950s.

Click the link in the title.  This is a view of career numbers around the time that Joe DiMaggio played for the Yankees, starting in 1936, ending in 1951.  Hall of Famers Jimmie Foxx and Hank Greenberg are of primary interest.

Rather than try to describe it, I'll let you simply review the numbers, which speak for themselves.  The first columns contain totals against Yankee pitchers, followed by numbers at Yankee Stadium and then the player's own park.  Finally, the difference, both in at bats (AB) needed to homer and the percentage difference.  Only Harlond Clift did better in Yankee Stadium.

Just for the heck of it, I put lefty batter Ted Williams at  the bottom.
