The Carry of a Fly Ball

“The primary purpose of this report has been to quantify the notion of “carry” and to estimate the carry the different parks. The carry has to do with atmospheric effects and not with other factors, such as the dimensions of the park. On the other hand, one can ask a different question: “What is the relative ease of hitting home runs in the different parks?” The answer to that question depends both on the atmospheric effects and on the park dimensions.”
