Inter-Legaue Data Dump

1 reply. Most recent reply: Jun 26, 2011 7:42 PM by westbaystars

For his upcoming podcast, John Gibson requested some "interesting data" about the Inter-league play recently. Well, lacking any kind of guidance as to what he's looking for, I started creating some summations of runs, hits, and home runs for the various teams. Next I'd like to take a play from "Curve Ball" (Albert and Bennett - ISBN 0-387-00193-X) and create histograms of these, but I'm afraid that the data is quickly getting a bit unwieldily. Without yet doing any real analysis of the data (other than looking hard at SoftBank's and Nippon Ham's runs scored/allowed), I'll present the raw data to you to look over and follow along on the podcast.

Re: Inter-Legaue Data Dump

Hmm. That data wasn't very interesting. Not anything that we didn't already know.

Jim Allen had mentioned that he suspected more home runs on fork balls than in past years, so I've looked up what the fateful home run pitch has been over the past three Inter-league seasons.
200920102011

cutter93.6%3.00134.6%2.9232.0%3.33

Looks like it's the straight fastball that is getting hit out consistently, and by a wide margin.

The "Avg P" columns are the average number of pitches thrown in an at bat where a home run was the result.

I think that Jim's assertion that fast ball and fork throwing pitchers are more likely to go after hitters quickly has some merit. Instead of fiddling around the borders of the plate (like the change-up/curve pitchers seem to like doing), the home runs hit have averaged earlier in the count in 2011 than the previous two years.
