The New York Yankees are often referred to as the Bronx Bombers thanks to the prolific amount of home runs they smash when playing at home. However, based on their recent performances at Camden Yards, it might be time to update that nickname.

In just 10 games played at the Baltimore Orioles' home field this season, the Yankees have hit 40 home runs. That's more than the San Francisco Giants (39 HRs in 55 games) and the Detroit Tigers (37 HRs in 53 games) have hit at home.

Simply put, that's outrageous. That's an average of exactly 4.0 home runs per game, which, if averaged out over the course of a full season, would amount to 648.0 home runs. The record for home runs in a single season is 267, which the Yankees set just last year.

The Yankees have already hit 198 home runs this season, so they certainly have a shot to break their own record. With three games at Camden Yards left to play this season, New York could chip away at this total.
