NO, IT'S NOT A GOOD HITTERS PARK.
In 2005, Camden reduced runs by 11 percent, hits by 6 percent, and BA by 4 percent, compared to the average park. Over the last 3 years, its park factors for runs is 97, for hits, it's 98, and for BA it's 99.
Camden boosts one thing: HRs. That's it. And it's not enough to offset the negative effect it has on singles, doubles (-6%), or triples (-38%).
So, Burnitz is moving from a park that had a LH park factor for BA of 98 and for HR of 104 to a park that has a LH park factor of 96 for BA and 100 for HR.
His numbers should drop, not rise.
