Abstract

The purpose of this project is to research and attempt to uncover a correlation between weather and offensive statistics from the last ten seasons in order to find how atmospheric conditions affect baseball games. Offensive statistics from the years 2010-2019 for each MLB stadium were gathered and averages were compiled in standard categories; runs, hits, home runs, among others. Using the National Climatic Data Center, past climatological records were also compiled. Variables such as humidity, wind, and air temperature were gathered. By using statistical tests, values that are considered notable in the baseball categories were noted, as well as weather values. Other metrics including elevation and direction in which the fields face were also noted. Results have yet to be compiled, as the project is still ongoing.
