If you love fantasy baseball, then you surely love statistics.
If you love baseball, then you surely love the homerun.
You are going to love this site. Just make sure that you don’t have to mow the grass or shop for Mother’s Day when you first log on, because you are going to be there for a while.
The site measures the distance of all major league homeruns. Now, that’s not anything new. That is found at nearly all of the parks around the MLB. Plus, they have been projecting the length of homeruns on television broadcasts for many years now.
But, look what’s available besides the length of the homerun. You can see the speed of the ball off the bat and the trajectory angle of the homerun. It also shows how the temperature affected the flight of the ball. Then, if you haven’t already had enough information, consider researching how many stadiums where the specific hit would have left the yard.
The longest homeruns of the 2009 season thus far were 470 feet and hit by Adrian Gonzalez of San Diego and Chris Iannetta of Colorado. Albert Pujols has the fastest speed off the bat at 119.7 MPH; imagine getting out of the way of that if it were hit up the box. Carlos Delgado of the Mets has the longest average homeruns at 443 feet!
Now, I have no idea how all of this information is going to help your fantasy baseball team, but it’s a heck of a lot of fun to look at the site.
