Statistical anomalies occur in every single sport, but in Major League Baseball they abound throughout its long history.
Statistical splits—home vs. road, day vs. night, right-handers vs. left-handers—can often be misleading. For instance, a left-handed platoon hitter isn't going to be matching up against a left-handed pitcher most of the time, so the splits would naturally be skewed.
