Sabermetrics in the On-Deck Circle

You know why I love sabermetrics? It’s the scientific study of a game I love. And it’s awesome, even when it gets down to the nitty gritty. Here’s a great Wall Street Journal article about the sabermetrics of the on-deck circle. Mathematical studies of players using the weighted bats and doughnuts in the on-deck circle found an effect on the batter’s performance!

Every. Little. Thing.

And that’s a good thing!
