I trust you are familiar with SABR, The Society for American Baseball
Research, whose members spend endless hours  researching such things.

If not our url is http://www.sabr.org/

If anyone knows the answer to your question it probably will be a SABR
member and if not one of us will be able to find the information if it

BTW. Every year SABR publishes a membership directory complete with
descriptions of expertise and my favorite is Stan Musial who describes his
expertise as hitting a baseball.
