July 2008

As I write this, the All-Star game goes to the 15th inning, and I go to bed. I’ll check the box score in the morning.

Over at the Hardball Times, I take a look at the bases loaded, two out, bottom of the ninth, one run lead situation going back to 1956.

It’s mostly just a fun historical research article, with some numbers gathered from Retrosheet and the Baseball-Reference Play Index and a dash of PITCHf/x at the end for flavor.


Finally! The new PITCHf/x article archive, now powered by a back-end database thanks to Bryan Donovan, is available at the Hardball Times.

You can read all about it here.
