Mickey Mantle: shocking numbers

Click title to see a breakdown of Mantle's batting numbers v. righty and lefty pitchers, home and road. Much more detail to come.  Check back.

The "throws" column is for the pitcher since I found three games in which Mickey batted righty against a righty.  I decided to show the data by the pitcher's handedness.  AB/HR: lower is better.  On road both are about 15 AB per HR.  Home: 13 AB per HR against righties, 19.4 AB per HR against lefties.

That said I was shocked at the disparities.  Slugging for instance:

against lefty pitchers:
.550 home
.601 road

against righty pitchers:
.584 home
.517 road
