Baseball Graph's "Batted Ball" Tables

Dave Studeman of Baseballgraph.com and Hardballtimes.com came up with an interesting data table a ways back. He calls them "batted ball" tables and they summarize the batted ball types and run values for batters, pitchers or entire teams:

Batted Ball Library Index

That index gives you all the background information you'll need to understand the tables (hint: read all the linked Hardball Times articles). The index also includes links to team specific pages.

Let's take a quick look at Milwaukee's Summary batted ball table:
 
Net Runs per Ball % of Batted Balls %/OF %/PA
BFP OF LD GB OF% LD% GB% HR K BB

2002 6083 0.02 0.37 -0.12 30% 20% 47% 10% 18% 9%
2003 6270 0.08 0.36 -0.12 30% 21% 45% 14% 19% 10%
2004 6195 0.08 0.31 -0.10 31% 19% 45% 10% 21% 10%
2005 6156 0.07 0.32 -0.11 31% 22% 43% 12% 19% 10%
--------------------------------------------------------------
Avg. 6176 0.06 0.34 -0.11 31% 21% 45% 11% 20% 10%
Vs MLB 0.03 -0.02 -0.01 -1% 0% 1% 0% 3% 0%



Total Net Runs

OF LD GB IF NIP Tot R/G

2002 26.9 315.3 -235.8 -37.0 -152.3 -104.7 -0.7
2003 102.6 322.3 -238.5 -41.5 -160.1 - 28.4 -0.2
2004 98.2 250.0 -189.6 -38.8 -189.4 - 81.2 -0.5
2005 89.9 305.3 -197.8 -36.8 -147.4 - 6.4 0.0
---------------------------------------------------------
Avg. 79.4 297.9 -215.0 -38.6 -162.1 - 54.7 -0.3
Vs MLB 31.7 -29.8 - 20.4 7.0 - 48.2

There is a heck of a lot of data in these tables to digest. I suggest going through the author's example on the index page to learn how to read these things.

The Brewers sure have struck out alot the last 4 years.
