Pujols Pulls, Pounds It; A Spray Chart


If you recall the last spray chart, which showed Carlos Gonzalez dominating right field at Coors, you'll see that Pujols is more or less the opposite. Power left, singles left. If you look at them side by side, you might notice that it appears** that Pujols is a bit more of the mythical "place hitter," in that he has this ability to hit it where they ain't. I absolutely love that shot up the left-field line that he seems to be able to do regularly. Just beautiful.

**Hit location data is from katron; counting stats are from b-ref. Curved lines are for effect and do not show actual path of the ball, and ending location is based on where the ball is fielded, not necessarily where it landed.
