Comparing Stats between the Two AAA Leagues (Help)

Postby Lime » Sat Jan 15, 2005 7:21 pm

International League and Pacific Coast League.

I'm trying to use AAA numbers while comparing multi soon-to-be-rookies. The only problem is that it's hard to compare two players if one is from the IL and the other is from the PCL. Reason being, one is probably more of a pitchers league and the other more of a hitters league.

Does anyone have or know where I can find the averages for stats in each league, like the three hitting percentages (AVG/OBP/SLG), homeruns, stolen bases, ERA, strikeouts, etc?

Also, is there a AAA version of Coors Field where the air is thin and the homeruns are plentiful, or any park quirks similar to that?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I don't know if it will have exactly what you're looking for, but Baseball America's 2005 almanac has the 2004 statistics for all minor-league teams. I don't think it has league-wide stats, but you may can get an idea looking at individual team stats.

Well, you probably could find a way to "normalize" the stats, but the rewards of that isn't worth the work, IMO.

I'd just take each league's stats with a grain of salt.

I'm not familiar with each particular ballpark, but I know for a fact that Las Vegas' ballpark (LA AAA) is a notorious hitters' park. You could go on each team's website to see what each ballpark's dimensions are. That could help a little in terms of hits, and especially homers.

Here is something Baseball America did last year that has the park factors, it's all I could find but it's better than nothing.
