Right Field home runs


Recommended Posts

i have no idea where to look so i'll ask here.

anyone have any info on how the new home run line in right field affected the total number of homers this year? was it more, less, or no appreciable difference for this season? would be interesting to see a breakdown for comparison.

@Jeff Fletcher has there been any discussion of this by the team?

The Angels have hit 7 and the opponents have hit 13. 

I was keeping track and I had 6 and 12, but they said 7 and 13 on the broadcast today so maybe I missed some. 

Thnx. Any comments from Sosh or Eppler about it yet?

13 from our opponents vs. 7 for the halos?  

damn.  that's like two wins.  

that's a pretty significant fail by our stats department imo.  

I wonder if they were counting on Calhoun and Valbuena to benefit from the change not anticipating they would epically collapse as hitters in general.

I always assumed they were doing it for long term reasons.  I doubt they expected it to have an immediate positive effect.  I figured it was to help entice left handed hitters to play here and once that happens the results should even out.  It was never going to benefit the Angels more than opposing teams immediately given the fact they are a heavily RHH team.

At the end of the day, even if they had a fair amount of LHH, it is going to be about 50-50 at best.  That is why I figured the reasoning behind it was more long term (fans get to see more HRs, LHH may be a little more easily persuaded to sign here, etc.)
