Yesterday’s Home Runs

The following stats are provided by Hit Tracker, which logs the projected distance of each home run (if it flew uninterrupted back to field level) and its “standard” distance, which is corrected for weather conditions. Note the difference between the two on all home runs hit in Wrigley.

THT’s Stats

The double is often the overlooked power number. This year, Mike Lowell has staged a remarkable comeback for the Red Sox, when many baseball commentators had given up on him. His double total is certainly helped by Fenway Park (15 doubles at home) but his comeback is legit; he’s batting .322 at home and .318 on the road and most of his homers have been hit on the road.
