I was looking through some splits for Brian Giles and Adrian Gonzalez and noticed their BABIP's between home and the road were drastically different. I then proceeded to look into the Padre teams as a whole since the park opened and found that except for 2005, the Padres have always had higher BABIP's on the road than home.
Obviously PETCO's dimensions affect HR rates, but why would they affect BABIP so much? Does the park put sun in the hitters eyes more often than others? Weather/climate? Does anyone know the answer to this or have any guesses or potential explanations?
