Sure they play at altitude, but so do many of the other teams in the Pacific Coast League. BUT - the Salt Lake Bees are making a mockery out of opposing pitchers this year and sending souvenirs into he stands like no other team.

38 Bees home runs on the season is SIX more than any @MLB or @MiLB team entering Monday. pic.twitter.com/BAehPpdOkU
38 home runs in 19 games. That is just plain ridiculous. Leading the way are Jabari Blash (9) and Chris Carter (8) who are the #1 and #2 leaders in the PCL and Blash has hit those 9 home runs in just 16 games.
Yes indeed, the Bees bats have been on a tear and they also have the highest AVG in the league, along with 145 runs scored (2nd most is Fresno at 129).
If you are a baseball in the PCL - you better be prepared to be murdered - because the Bees are coming for you.
