UNR study: Temperature affects baseball scores

“It could be beneficial for managers of MLB teams to take game day temperature into account when setting their lineups,” Koch said.

“For instance, if a manager is having difficulty choosing between two players for his starting lineup, and one player is a more patient hitter and tends to draw more walks than the other player, the manager might benefit from starting the patient hitter in cold temperatures,” Koch said.
