Umps Stats

Unread postby ArtGold » Mon Jun 04, 2007 7:31 pm

With all of the analysis done concerning baseball I haven't see anything on umpires. Are there any statistics showing umps and the performance when they are behind home plate.

Examples would be how righties or lefties fare statistically (balls and strikes) how sinkerball pitchers fare vs flyball pitchers and how clubs do by ump.

I'm trying to determine umpire tendencies towards calling balls and strikes. Small strike zone vs large strike zone. Favoring lefties vs righties. Not calling sinkers for strikes. Anything like these types of tendencies.

Anybody seen anything like this in terms of statistical data?

If you follow a game of msn.foxsports.com ("GameTrax"), it will give you stats about the ump's average K/game, BB/game, and Batting Average in the games he's called, so I bet there's some raw underlying data somewhere on site to generate it. I haven't investigated getting it out, though.

OK, that's a start. Do we know what company they use to compile these stats?
