Braves Quote For The Day

The Braves old first baseman comments on park effects (as he sees them):

"As a hitter, for whatever reason, when you’re in a ballpark where you know you can drive the ball out from foul pole to foul pole, it just does something to your confidence," LaRoche said. "I felt that a little bit playing in Atlanta. I enjoyed hitting there. It was very fair. But the fact is, when you go into a place like Cincinnati or Philadelphia, some of these smaller ballparks where the ball travels well, your confidence is up. That definitely weighs on your decision."

The quote if from an article by John Perrotto, and I highly recommend it. There is some good information about Adam LaRoche's decision to choose the Diamondbacks over the Giants.
