Multiple homer games stats

Postby tinylund » Sun Jan 08, 2012 12:47 pm

My league gives bonus points for multiple homer game, I haven't found a source for this stat anywhere. I know it is a stat that is found somewhere because I see/hear it referenced every once in awhile during games or in articles written. Does anyone know where these stats could be found?

Other than individual game logs I'm not sure it is available. Even if it was I wouldn't be surprised if there was no projection information you could gleam from it. Multi-HR games are probably pretty random. Finding guys that are "good" at accomplishing it is probably just the same task as finding guys that will hit the most HR overall.

By multiple you mean two homer games right? Pretty sure nobody has ever hit 3 in a game.

Tiny welcome to the 'Cafe' ;-D

*btw there is a curious fascination about players that have been said (not proven) to hit 3 hrs in one game.

I am not looking for projections of multi-homer games, I am looking for stats from the last 3-5 years. I know the big names have 2-5 multi-homer games a year, I was just looking for past years stats to see maybe how is more consistant. Maybe I will just have to take the time to look through the game stats on MLB, maybe I can do 3 players a day, until our draft.

Thanks anyway!

Welcome to the Cafe!

Regarding the stats on multi-homer games; really you're looking to analyze the data to make some sort of projection on who has a greater likelihood or track record of it. Whatever data you find simply won't have a great enough sample to provide any real insight on the matter. The number of total HR most players hit fluctuates quite a bit from year to year, once you start getting more specific than that you're getting further and further away from tangible and useful data that information can be pulled from.

Best of luck.
