The Angels haven't been having the best time with their batting average numbers and some research may have given them an unusual solution.
The MLB team suspects that an ad on the center left field fence may be to blame, according to the OC Register:
Months of study by the team’s analytics department concluded that a part of the problem might have been an ad on the center field fence, General Manager Billy Eppler said this week.
The ad had been encroaching toward the batters’ line of sight since 2012, moving to its furthest left position, closest to straightaway center, in 2015.
When the Angels returned home for this homestand on Tuesday, the sign – for the Pechanga Casino – had been moved to the right, clearing the fence in center field.
We'll just have to wait and see if they're right!
