MLB Handicapping: New infield at Rogers Centre should speed up ground balls

02.24.2016     08:10 AM     Printer Friendly

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After a litany of complaints last year, the Toronto Blue Jays are installing a new infield. The field will remain artificial but the base paths have been switched to dirt. Statistics -- and various quotes -- indicated the field played extremely slow as the Jays had the lowest ground ball batting average in the league (.222). In 2014, they batted .277 but that was prior to the installation of new turf they turned right around and got rid of.


"You could tell," Gregorius said."It's so much slower. I had guys on their team telling me, 'Watch out,' and to charge the ball more because you're going to need to."

Even manager Joe Girardi noticed.

"It's much slower. And you would probably get a much better idea from the infielders than me, but the ball really seems to slow down on this new turf here, and they probably need more than one game to evaluate it. But it's definitely different," he said.
