Park Effects

It’s one of the many things that makes baseball so interesting: each park can be totally different than the last. Can you imagine if basketball courts could be different lengths? Football fields had different length end zones? Some hockey goals were wider? Narrower? It’s ridiculous.

But park effects also put a wrinkle on fantasy baseball and the trade deadline. In the coming weeks, we’ll be talking about players and how they might fare on a new team. Park factors will be a major part of that. So I explain where to get the best park factors and a little about their limitations. It all comes down to Ryan Ludwick for some reason.

I write. About baseball, mostly, but also about the anthropology of sports, travel, cooking and sometimes music. But yeah, baseball mostly.
