Are most homers hit to LF or RF?

Postby skjelstrom » Thu Jan 06, 2011 5:31 pm

This question is more to help me in a simulated baseball game that I play, but I am also curious. For a RH hitter, which side are most HR hit to? For a LH hitter, which side are most HR hit to?

On my simulated team I have 1946 Hammerin' Hank (Hank Greenberg) and trying to figure out where a majority of his HR's will be hit to. He is a RH hitter and not in any particular park (as that is yet to be determined what home park I choose).

Any insight? Thanks.

I believe since most players in baseball, and in the human population, are right-handed they would essentially hit most of their homers in the pull variety. So, I would think righties would hit most of their homers to LF and lefties would hit most of their's to RF.

Those are the numbers I used when I added hit location to my sim. Not sure if the one you are playing uses anything similar though.
