I hope I've come to the right place. I'm trying to design a statistically driven baseball game, and while I enjoy baseball and am fairly knowledgeable, I am certainly no guru.
I have a few questions regarding certain stats and certain situations that I can't find the answers to elsewhere.
The first is on the subject of Air Outs (AO) and SF. Are SF included in the overall AO numbers or recorded separately? In other words, if stats said a team had 1000 AO on a season and 100 SF, is that 1100 total outs or 1000 OF WHICH 100 were SF?
Next, I assume that IFF outs are included in the AO figure. Where can I get raw data on number of IFF outs?
Thanks in advance for any help. If I can get these answered, I'll probably have a few more for you....
