I need to refine my method a little and take more things into consideration. I'm trying to find a resource that outlines which ball parks are "hitters" parks and which are "pitchers" parks. If anyone has a list or knows of a source for the info, please let me know.
The Scouting Notebook has park indexes. Most parks are considered neutral. I will list the extreme ones. 100 is neutral. 95-105 indexes are considered neutral. About 60% fall into that area. Over 100 induces hitting, under 100 pitching. While their are many catergories rated, the 3 big ones are average, hrs, runs indexes.
Minute Maid everyone knew those 2
Qualcomm SD was Petco new park
Notice most the pitchers parks were in nl? Some quick notes on myths. Fenway, Wrigley, Camden Yards arent the hitters parks some media write. All 3 really are neutral. Wrigley has the biggest variable index in history, due to the winds.
