Homers by Lefties, Here, There, But Not Everywhere

So far this season, there have been 1913 homers hit.

  • Of that total, 1053 (54%) have been hit from the right-side of the plate, 860 from the left (45%, yes I rounded off).
  • Of the 860 homers that have been hit by lefties, 435 (51%) have been hit at home, 425 on the road (49%, yes I rounded off).
  • There have been 54 batters this season who have hit 10+ homers.
  • Of that total, 33 (61%) 10+ homer hitters did it from the right-side of the plate, 21 (38% yes, I rounded off again) from the left.
  • There have been 11 batters this season who have hit 15+ homers.
  • Of that total, six (54%) 15+ homer hitters did it from the right-side of the plate, five (45%, more rounding off) from the left.
  • The major league leading home run hitter is Chris Davis with 20 and the NL leader, Domonic Brown, has 19. They are both lefties.

Lefties are clearly hitting their share of homers.

Except for the Angels and for Kansas City in the AL.

The last Royals lefties who homered at home were Jarrod Dyson and Mike Moustakas off of Phil Hughes on May 10. 

Hank Conger homered for the Angels on May 2, the only homer the team has hit at home this month.

Except for the Brewers, Marlins and for the Dodgers in the NL.

Especially the Brewers

Norichika Aoki is the only Brewer lefty batter to homer this season.

Aoki has hit three at Miller Park, the last one on April 29.

The Marlins lefties  have hit one homer at home in each month this season.

Adrian Gonzalez hit the last Dodger lefty road homer and that was barely away since it was off Ernesto Frieri in Anaheim

By the way, the Brewers lefties only hit 27 homers lats season, 16 at home including an Aoki walkoff homer.
