Retrosheet Hit Location Diagram

Hit Location Diagram

While most Retrosheet game event files do not have them, hit location codes are included in some. The system, which is the same that was used by Project Scoresheet and the Baseball Workshop, appends the hit location to the description of the play. For example "S8/L8S" means a single played by the center fielder that was a line drive (L) landing in short center (8S). The play "7/F78D" is a fly ball caught by the left fielder in deep left center. The diagram below shows the hit location codes and contains additional examples.
