HBD Ballpark Factors

Ballpark effects are ranked on a scale from - 4 to + 4, based on their impact on hits (1B), doubles (2B), triples (3B), home runs to left field (HR LF) and home runs to right field (HR RF). The more negative or positive number, the more extreme the effect for that hit in that direction. These numbers are just indicators of the relative effect in the simulation engine. They are important for users and founded entirely on historical fact, but are meant for display purposes and not explicitly used in the simulation engine.

Sioux Falls-Cricket did a nice job setting up this franchise for the future and the lineup is pretty solid but the pitchers are still in the minors.14. Cleveland- dcbove is in the process and building a monster again but most of the prospects will stay in the minors this year.13. Burlington-On to the rebuilding teams. Burlington takes a jump forward with veterans like the signing of Matos and trade for Flier while the prospects continue to come up12. Huntington-Formerly Columbus team which pitching staff will show up this year.
