The DH and Hit Batters

An article on a paper by Doug Drinen and myself on the hit batsmen difference between the AL and NL has just hit the web. I wouldn’t have known except that Baseball Primer has already started a thread on it. I don’t have much time to write on it now, thanks to a lunch committee beating (I mean meeting), but I may write more on this later. Here is a link to the original paper.

Update: I have a few more links to pass along. The main story appears on the Inside Science News Service of the American Institute of Physics (go figure). Also, here is an earlier wire story from Dick Jones Communications. If you have not checked out the thread on Primer linked above, there was a very interesting discussion of the paper there yesterday.

Update: The Globe and Mail has also picked up the story.
