Indicate ballpark effects in Play by Play Topic

Just like there are symbols in the Play by Play for +/- plays it would be nice to see similar symbols for when the ballpark factors affected the outcome of a play.

I like this idea, and I'm upset with myself I never thought of it before.

You let us all down with your irresponsible behavior.

Um, don't ballpark effects affect all plays?

yeah, I don't think it is quite as simple as saying "that was a HR because of the short fence."  I think the way it works is that you are more likely to get a HR because of the +3 factor...but it's not a direct correlation.  You have to remember that most of what you read in the boxscore is just window dressing.
