THE NUMBERS DON'T LIE
46
Home runs hit by new centerfielder Alfonso Soriano last season, 24 of which came at spacious RFK Stadium--his former home park with the Nationals. RFK yielded 165 home runs all season, the fourth-lowest total in the NL. By comparison there were 206 dingers hit at Wrigley Field; only two other NL stadiums, Cincinnati's and Philadelphia's, yielded more long balls.
