Hitters and Pitchers in New Ballparks

It's the age-old question; how will a new ballpark affect a player's performance? Does it favor pitchers or hitters? Dome or no dome? Boxers or briefs?

OK, so that last one doesn't really have any effect on a hitter's performance (at least it hasn't been proven yet), but what if there was a more literal way to see the direct effect a new stadium will have on a hitter's offense? Well thanks to katron.org, there is.

Using their BIP Location tool, you can take someone like Jason Bay's hits at Fenway Park and see where they would have landed in Citi Field. I played around with this tool and thought I would share with you some interesting facts I found out in the process.

(Note: Dark Blue = Home run, Light blue = Double, and any type of yellow is a fly out.)
