I don't really see any statistics in your comments but here are some facts to consider.
In the previous 9 games in 2017 there was only 1 HR hit at Falmouth. In the game on Saturday there were three. At game time The wind was stiff to left field. Both Falmouth HR's were career firsts and Knops of Portland appears to be his first this season as researched on MaXPrep website.

As for dimension- Falmouth's left field pole is around 300 and tapers to 325ish for about 50 feet. It then juts straight back to 350ish and runs around the rest of the outfield holding a line between 340-360 to the right field pole. This might be one of the deepest right field lines in SMAA.

York is irrelevant as they are not moving to SMAA, but I could see you rational if they were. Portland plays a number of games at Deering Oaks which has a right field line at 280 I believe.

I think you could argue that by playing 8 games in Falmouth you could see a decrease as teams might have played games on smaller fields will now have to play at Falmouth. OR You could also argue that HR's might increase because Falmouth will be playing on fields which are smaller then Cape, Greely or Yarmouth. Hard telling not knowing.

No matter how you look at it your motivation to make a statement like that is very curious.

I appreciate your response. The subject isn't important enough for me to continue. Specific to the most recent game, I'm fine with the explanation of wind.

Bangor Baseball Claims 4th Straight Region Championship

HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL

CLASS A NORTH REGION FINAL

BANGOR 3, MT. ARARAT 0

*******************************************************************************

Bangor tops Mt. Ararat for fourth straight ‘A’ regional baseball title

... The University of Maine-bound Kemble — who entered the game with a 0.15 earned run average this spring — pitched a four-hit shutout with 12 strikeouts and just one walk as the three-time defending state champions captured their fourth consecutive regional title with a 3-0 victory over Mt. Ararat at sun-splashed Morton Field.

“(Kemble) did a great job of pitching backwards,” said Mt. Ararat coach Bob Nearon. “On fastball counts he was throwing breaking balls. He threw a lot of first-pitch breaking balls and I can tell you there ain’t a high school player in the world that’s sitting back waiting for a first-pitch curveball.

*******************************************************************************

Bangor reaches fourth straight Class A state final, topples Mt. Ararat

...Kemble’s credentials spoke loudly coming into the game — 46 innings pitched, one earned run allowed, 66 strikeouts and just six walks. The future University of Maine product did little to hurt those stats against Mt. Ararat.

On the other side, Moody threw just 76.

“It was another gem by Moody,” said Mt. Ararat coach Bob Neron after watching his ace allow just five hits and two walks with three strikeouts. “Garrett gave it his all. He kept us in the game.”

Missed chances

Bangor shuts out Mt. Ararat for fourth straight regional title
The Rams set up a rematch with Falmouth in the Class A state final.


AUGUSTA — The key to the Bangor baseball team’s success is simple to pitcher Peter Kemble.

“Pitching and defense,” said Kemble, a senior for the Rams. “Can’t lose if they don’t score.”

Kemble struck out 12 batters in Wednesday’s Class A North championship at Morton Field, guiding the fourth-seeded Rams to a 3-0 victory over No. 7 Mt. Ararat (for their fourth straight regional title.

Guarino's gem leads Falmouth past Cheverus, back to the state final

STANDISH—All spring, Falmouth’s baseball team has worn the bulls-eye.

And the Yachtsmen have worn it well.

And as a result, Falmouth now finds itself one win from a state championship.

Wednesday afternoon at the Larry Mahaney Diamond on the campus of St. Joseph’s College, the top-ranked Yachtsmen measured themselves against No. 2 Cheverus in a highly anticipated Class A South Final.

**************************************************************************************
Guarino, Yachtsmen stifle Stags

...The senior pounded the strike zone and left Cheverus no choice but to swing the bats. Much more often than not, those swings resulted in outs, and the Yachtsmen will have their ace available Saturday after all.

Guarino allowed just three hits, struck out three and let his defense take care of the rest in six dominating innings to give top-seeded Falmouth its second consecutive Class A South championship with a 4-1 win over second-seeded Cheverus at St. Joseph's College's Larry Mahaney Diamond.

"My goal for today was to just be efficient and get under 66 (pitches) so I'm eligible for the state championship game," Guarino said. "I just found a groove and I just kept throwing."

http://www.sunjournal.com/news/local-sp ... gs/2148593

**************************************************************************************

Cam Guarino retires 16 straight batters in a 4-1 victory over Cheverus.

...Guarino turned in a marvelous performance to lift top-ranked Falmouth to a 4-1 victory over second-seeded Cheverus in the Class A South championship game at St. Joseph’s College.

After giving up a first-inning single, Guarino set down 16 straight batters to help the Yachtsmen win their second consecutive regional title.

“I think that’s the best I’ve seen him pitch in four years,” said Falmouth Coach Kevin Winship. “He commanded the strike zone, he had control of all three pitches. He threw them all for strikes. Again, I think that’s the best I’ve ever seen him pitch.”

windy for sure.....The FHS homers would've soared out of most parks even without wind (not Goodall)....Coyne's tater might've been a long single at Hadlock given its trajectory, how hard it was hit along with Archie's ability to get there fast and throw it hard and accurate...probably a double as it was hit closer to the line.
Archie's and Snyder's shots were inches away, musta been a lull in the wind.
