Mickey Mantle home runs against Cleveland.

Against lefty Cleveland pitchers:
Road: 23.8% AB; 16.7% HR
Home: 30.1% AB; 37.9% HR

Road AB/HR:
21.83 against lefties
13.97 against righties

Home AB/HR:
13.91 against lefties
19.78 against righties

AB/HR rates at Yankee Stadium are about equal to Mickey Mantle's career rates there.  His rates in Cleveland are a puzzle.  Mantle's career road rates are about 15 against both righty and lefty pitchers.

The previous post showed that Mantle hit 29 home runs (HR) against Cleveland in Yankee Stadium and a surprising eleven were hit against lefties.  I wondered about that and checked.  Here is a list of the 11 HR against Cleveland lefties at Yankee Stadium.

The other surprising thing was that he hit only six of 36 against lefties in Cleveland.
