    <!-- end mod-article-title --><!-- begin story body -->The [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] might have a serious problem on their hands: Beautiful new Yankee Stadium appears to be a veritable wind tunnel that is rocketing balls over the fences.

    [+] Enlarge <CITE>Nick Laham/Getty Images</CITE>The Indians' Shin-Soo Choo blasts one of Cleveland's six home runs at new Yankee Stadium on Saturday.



    This was in evidence again on Saturday, when the Indians posted six homers, including 14 runs in the second inning. Cleveland eventually won 22-4 -- and the Yankees and Indians have combined for 14 homers in the last two days.
    "With the way the wind has been the last couple of days, right field is a joke," one official said. "I would say at least three or four home runs in this series would be routine outs in nearly every park."
    There have been five games played in new Yankee Stadium, including two exhibitions against the [Only registered and activated users can see links. ], and so far there have been 25 homers -- including 17 in the first three games in the Yankees' first home series against the Indians.
    That's an average of five home runs per game and, at this pace, there would be about 400 homers hit in the park this year -- or an increase of about 250 percent. In the last year of old Yankee Stadium, in 2008, there were a total of 160 homers.
