Top 5 hardest for 2004 were:
26 Shea
27 Busch
28 Jacobs
29 Kauffman
30 PETCO ... t=HRFactor

hey, this might be enough proof, thanks.. I knew it was a lot closer than I thought, but was pretty sure they were outside the top 5 which is a win for me....

That index thingy don't work so well for me!

Hr totals by stadium

Postby Minor League Skilz » Sat Mar 05, 2005 1:14 pm

I didn't realize that this post was so old. I was browsing the forum and it caught my attention. If the bet is still on I think I might have what you are looking for.

I took the home and away HR totals fro each stadium in 2004 and sorted them in ascending order. I also included the 2002-2004 HR totals, unless otherwise noted.*

Team 2004 02-04 *
Mon (PR) 24 70 (03-04)
Mon (Olympic) 112 371
NYM 113 398
SD 113 265 (02-03 Qualcomm)
Pitt 123 408
Florida 130 360
KC 135 346 (02-03)
Mil 135 498
Cleveland 143 428
SF 144 365
TB 148 429
baltimore 153 493
Oakland 154 451
Tor 155 500
Anaheim 156 420
Atlanta 156 453
Minn 157 442
StL 158 457
Detroit 164 261 (02-03)
Houston 168 472
Dodgers 169 425
Seatle 170 443
Arizona 170 474
Boston 171 456
Tex 189 632
NYY 190 511
Phil 202 262 (02-03 The Vet)
Cin 204 402 ( 03-04)
Colorodo 206 611
Chicago Cubs 225 545
CWS 231 624

As you can see San Fran was out of the top five in 2004, but if you look at the teams with full three year totals (the teams without three year totals either changed stadiums or moved fences, which makes it pretty hard to judge) Sf is second right after Florida. Since there has been quite a few park changes int he last few years the HR index (spoken of earlier) is a pretty good measure of the stadiums.

FYI I pulled this info from the Bill James Handbok, park indices section.

Better late than never. ;-D

**By the way, I cut and paste this info from an excel spreadsheet and now it is all lumped together even though it looks good in the preview. Anyone know what i should be doing to fix this? I'll do a search in the meantime.
