My friend Bob and I and are on a constant quest for the ultimate baseball statistic. Baseball has numbers on just about every aspect possible. I heard one last week about the on base percentage against a left-handed pitcher during day games on turf. Seriously, there is information on that.
Other sports do too but baseball has to be the most thoroughly researched sport there is.
I just heard one on ESPN SportsCenter that may be the ultimate.
Boston plays the Detroit Tigers tonight at Fenway.
We shall see…
