HR's to all fields

Postby NZ Eff » Sun Jun 29, 2008 4:41 pm

I've watched a lot more baseball this season than in the past and it has surprised me how few true power hitters there are in baseball, that hit to all fields.

Manny is one of the few.

I don't have statistics to back it up, but David Wright goes the other way very well. I feel like he has way more doubles to RF than homers to RF, but he does get plenty of hits the other way.

Ryan Howard, Adrian Gonzalez, and Lance Berkman have power to all fields as well.
