  2. Yeah, what exactly are the classifications for each batted ball category… Is there a documented standard that is followed? Also who ultimately makes these decisions? For example HR/FB percentage… Are all home runs assumed to be fly balls? And when does a hard hit short hopper become a line drive… It’s hard to figure these thresholds…

  3. There is a good chance that some of this is pitchers responding to CBP by throwing pitches that are harder to hit out of the park, focusing more on throwing it low in the strike zone. The team as a whole was probably trying to hit more home runs after moving to a hitter’s park, and probably were working on hitting more fly balls in general, but pitch selection by opponents was different in the two parks.

    Or, maybe it’s just a statistical anomaly? Just a thought anyway. Interesting article.
