Road warriors – Fun with 2015 MLB stats

by Bill Chuck on March 4, 2016

After a lot of years (a lot!) my days of working full-time in my home office will soon be coming to an end (more on that in the near future) and I’m looking forward to working in a new setting. There is an energy and excitement about working in less familiar surroundings, but there still will be a keyboard and a monitor to make me feel at ease.

The same is true for batters. The field, clubhouse, and dugout may be different, but the mantra remains the same: “See the ball, hit the ball.”
