Hitter ballparks vs Pitcher ballparks

Postby stephen13 » Sun Apr 01, 2007 1:39 am

Does anyone know where I can get a ranking of the 30 ballparks divided into Hitters/Neutral/Pitcher Parks?

I would urge you NOT to use the sportsfanatics or ESPN numbers. One year park factors are very unreliable. I don't think I've see 3 year park factors on line, but that's what you need. Bill James' Baseball Abstract has those, also detailed by RH and LH hitters, and components of hitting (BA, HR, etc.)

Very useful stuff

I'd found listings at SportsFanatics and Fantasy Baseball Guy, but when the two lists didn't agree closely I thought I'd should seek 'professional' help and see what source others were using.

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

I just found this article at KFFL. How do you think it stacks up?

fanatics are based of James which are based on weighted 3-year aren't they?


Also, I've compared ESPNs to James and BPs, they're quite similar.

It's a good article, but it would be nice to have a clearer summary of park effects.

I think that was so last year, but this year's table indicates it is based on 2006 season alone.

I have not made the comparison between the three, so maybe it's worthwhile to look at that. If you have a good summary that would be helpful.
