2011 Ballhawking Season End Review

Last year, I wrote an entry recapping how my ballhawking stats broke down by different categories. To be fair, I only snagged 56 baseballs so I don’t know why I broke them down so much but here is the second installment of that entry.

The overall numbers are:

Baseballs(B): 161

Games(G): 46

Balls Per Game(BPG): 3.50

Gameballs (GB): 2 (both foul)

Autographs: approximately 7 (mygameballs’s autograph database is being difficult)

Hit Balls(HB): 49 (The thing to work on next year)

Hit Balls Per Game (HPG): 1.07

Thrown Balls(TB): 96

Thrown Balls Per Game (TPG): 2.09

Easter Eggs(EE): 12 (The fact that I live in New York should explain this)

Easter Eggs Per Game (EPG): .26

Glove Trick Balls(GT): 4 (In three games)

Glove Trick Balls Per Game (GPG): 0.09 (I need to be less paranoid about security)

BP balls: 152

Balls During Game: 5 (I don’t sit by the dugouts much)

Balls After Game: 4 (The majority of these are bullpen balls)

Average Competition Factor (ACF): 98,609

I think this is all, but if anyone writes a comment suggesting more stats, I will almost certainly include them. Also, there are some stats that didn’t include, a link to my “mygameballs.com account” can be found to the right of this paragraph as the third link in the “Sites related to ballhawking” widget.  Once there, you can browse through my baseballs in a variety of different ways. For example, you can see where I catch most of my baseballs in the seats at a specific ballpark. So at Citi Field, most of my baseballs would probably be in LF because I spend most of my time there in B.P. This is just one of the things you can see there. It is actually scary how much time you can consume just looking a the different stats in the site.

Hello, observers of baseball. Let me know what you though of the entry no matter what you thought of it. Additonally, let me know if you'd like to see me do anything in specific or what I'm doing right or wrong when I do write entries.
