Welcome to AngelsWin! I'm curious about this myself. @Jeff Fletcher do you have any idea if there is a statistic that measures this?

There are, it's just about digging through them. I'm sure Jeff appreciates you giving him homework.

Was going to say it helps Ohtani.  Then I realized, no, he hits everything well into the seats there.

Then was going to say it hurt Heaney.  Then I realized, no, every HR he gave up there went well into the seats.


Only thing I can say with confidence is that it would have helped Brian Downing.

Oh wait, the scoreboard wasn't there when he played.  Never mind.

Well here, you can at least look at the changes in wRC+ over the years: https://www.fangraphs.com/guts.aspx?type=pfh&season=2020&teamid=1


Not sure when the RF change was made, but looking at HR's, above, it seems like HR's have been steadily climbing since 2013 with a sharper jump in the 2017-2018 timeframe. This could be a combination of factors, too, with MLB messing with the ball composition, increased strikeouts (harder throwers, thus harder contact), etc.

Its a silly way to determine a homerun.  Half the time they have to use instant replay when the ball impacts close to the line because the umpires cant. Just clearing the fence or wall makes for a better moment versus a thud and bounce back and then wait 30 seconds for a decision. Homerun interruptus. Just trying to engage a bit during this wait.
