They excluded home runs from fly balls and line drives, because of those can not be handled by fielders.

Second, how are foul outs handled in these statistics? Could they be a third class of Easy Out? Do they occur frequently enough to consider? Finally, knowing the league statistics by batted ball type, is there a stat that takes these league Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
