Normalization Schema for Rainouts
Posted: 03 October 2006 06:40 PM   [ Ignore ]

I’m new to this community, so I hope I’m not offending anyone by posting this kind of question.

The PONY baseball program in my area is trying to develop a normalization schema for metrics to account for rained out games. The league uses player statistics as a major component of the All-Star selection process at the end of the season, and we’re trying to figure out how to compare them if the number of games aren’t the same due to rainouts.

I’ve done some surfing to see if I can locate something that will help us out, but haven’t located anything as of yet. Could someone help point me in the right direction to find out how to develop such a metric?

Thanks in advance.

If you focus solely on rate stats like slugging and on base percentage, ERA and WHIP, you can avoid the normalization issue entirely.
