A Big Surprise



A Website to Review

If you have a minute, check out the following website if you are into statistical information of the game of baseball:

http://baseball1.com/bb-data/bbd-bj1.html

The website provides conclusions Bill James, the famous baseball researcher, as founded over the years. One interesting deatil is James's defensive chain:

[ - 1B - LF - RF - 3B - CF - 2B - SS - C - ]

The importance of the defensive position is based from right to left. This has been a source of debate between myself and a assistant coach over the years. Our debate centered on the importance of having a sure handed third baseman and how important the position really was compared to the other defensive spots. I would have thought that the first baseman was MORE important than the third baseman. According to James, my theory is incorrect. Take a look at the other facts on the website and explore the material.
