Fan Fielding Survey 2006

Tom Tango, who has one of the more interesting and informative sabermetric sites on the net, conducts an annual survey on defensive skills. Some of you participated in the 2005 survey. It's now time for the 2006 survey. The results of this survey are a very valuable resource so I'm encouraging all knowledgable fans who watch a lot of Detroit Tiger games to participate.

The survey asks fans to rate the fielding skills of players on their favorite teams just based on observation. You will be asked not to use any stats at all and also not to vote based on what somebody else told you. Just use your own eyes as if you were a scout. The ballot and instructions can be found here. The results were very interesting and informative last year but a large sample size is needed in order for them to be useful again this year. So, I urge all of you to fill out the ballot.

  1. I follow them as closely as I can, but I'm usually only able to listen to games online. I haven't seen too many games on TV this year, and have only been to two in person.

    It would be hard for me to offer any valuable input based mostly on what I've heard and read, but I'm interested in seeing the results.

  2. Tom will have results on his site for all the teams probably after the season. Plus, I plan to be doing a lot of fielding analysis this off-season.
