Home/Road splits: Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, Derek Jeter.

Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Yogi Berra, Mickey Mantle, Derek Jeter (except for four regrettable games and nine plate appearances for Berra with the Mets) played their entire careers for the New York Yankees, which means that they played all their home games in Yankee Stadium.

Gehrig and Berra batted lefty and Mantle switch hit.  The Stadium configuration changed but always was short in right and long in left.

Percent differences were done using road as base: (home-road)/road.  Click this link to view detailed data.  Here are some of the numbers. The total percents are a bit misleading because they all had more plate appearances on the road. But OPS is telling. DiMaggio (-7.6%) and Gehrig (-4.2%) hit worse at home than on the road. Berra was plus 7% at home, Mantle and Jeter both about plus 4%.
