Just In Case They Come Back — A Stat For The Seagulls Issue

Posted By on Tue, Jun 23, 2009 at 11:54 AM

Yes, it seems as if the periodic fireworks at Progressive Field has kept the seagull infestation at bay so far, but what if they return? After Shin-Soo Choo's game-winning hit off a seagull against the Royals, we could be looking at more instances of the birds interfering with play in the future.

We might need to keep track of that. Probably not, but I asked Indians' stat guru Keith Woolner to come up with a couple of acronyms just in case. It's not like he's got anything more important going on this week, right?

Anyway, this is what he came up with.

WHAM — Waterfowl Hitting Average Metric

BIRDS — Baseball Impacts Rebounded Directly off of Seagulls
