Comments on: Tutorials: Fielding Stats http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/4419 This and that about baseball stats. Tue, 16 Jul 2013 17:01:55 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.6 By: Johnny Twisto http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/archives/4419/comment-page-1#comment-11044 Thu, 04 Feb 2010 02:45:59 +0000 http://www.baseball-reference.com/blog/?p=4419#comment-11044 Dave Pearson, it depends what you are looking for. If you look at the league batting splits page, you can find the total batting stats for all catchers, or break that down by team. Using the PI, you could find the individual batting stats for everyone who played catcher last year, or who played at least X games at catcher. But if you are looking for individual stats for all catchers _just_ during their time at catcher, I don't _think_ you can do that (unless I've forgotten or overlooked something).

Bizarre. I thought I must have posted on the wrong page for a second.

My last message was meant for Neil Paine, a.k.a. Painsies.

For example, I want batting stats for all catchers from last year.

He wrote some stuff at the Hardball Times explaining the TotalZone system:

Also, we have a page on the method as well:

do total fielding runs adjust for, e.g. percent of all hits being ground balls to determine a shortstop's value? becuase if they dont, a team with more breaking ball pitchers will favor the infield, and vice versa.

Although I have to agree that the fielding stats in the rest of the site are just superb.
