2006-08 MLB Park Factors

The 411 will be returning on Tuesday, November
11th and will air each Tuesday and Thursday from 11-11:30 am ET.

Hey folks, it’s been a while since I’ve posted and I’m sorry for that, and to make it up, here’s a little treat to keep you busy over the winter… attached is an Excel spreadsheet with
MLB park factors
for the last three seasons combined, from 2006-2008.

If you’re curious about the methodology, please refer back to the post from last March when we first provided park factors for 2005-2007.

Interesting factoid: Coors Field (below) is pretty clearly still the best “hitter’s park” in baseball, but it’s

I’ll try to post the 2009 List of 12 in the next week or so but hopefully this will all entertain you in the meantime. Enjoy the postseason!

Your friend in 411,

So it seems that Nationals park is pretty much neutral. Slightly below average in HR’s.
However a big spike in GIDP?!? Just a fluke or is there something to it?
