Our new statistic refined & improved - Bases Created Per Plate Appearance - Ep. 436 #HeliumRadio
It was great to receive so many responses to our podcast Episode 434 from last week on Total Bases Per Plate Appearance. We wanted to go further with it and apparently listeners want that too. So we’ve created another new stat – Bases created per plate appearance. This stat includes BB, IBB, HBP and net Stolen Bases for each player and each team. This season’s Atlanta Braves reign supreme with this stat as well as the more productive hitting team in MLB history!
We’re still tweaking and fine tuning as there’s an issue with Grounding into Double Plays as a negative stat since that stat was not calculated until 1933 in the NL and 1939 in the AL so players like Babe Ruth and teams before that time benefit unfairly. We put a link to our Google sheet with tabs for BC/PA by team all-time, Players all-time and teams in the just completed 2023 season.
We’ve added a YouTube Channel. Here is the link to the Almost Cooperstown channel
