Albert, Super-Imposed on Minute Maid

March 5, 2010

Neat tool.

What happens when you super-impose Pujols’ batted balls into the Juicebox? 9 extra homers, that’s what. That would be a total of 56 homers for last season, if Albert were an Astro. (Yeah, that made me twinge).

Of course the problem with this is these graphics is they show where the ball was fielded, not where the ball landed, so take this with a grain of salt. I do think if Albert played half his games at Minute Maid, he would probably be hitting 50 per year.

Fun toy.

H/t to the creator and finder of cool stuff, Tango.

    the thought of Albert as an Astro made me throw up in my mouth a little bit…

    I bet you could combine that, a table of the outfield wall heights, and the trajectory data from and come up with a truly useful tool.
