August 18, 2015 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day (HOD Finale Eve)

Piggybacking off of Jim’s daily post from a few days ago, the minor league season is coming to a close, as Jim announced that Monday August 24 will be his last daily UTR Pitcher Performances installment of the season. I’m following suit. Today marks the second to last Hitters of the Day post of the UTR HOD regular season. (Is it just me or did the regular season absolutely fly by?)  I originally scheduled the same day as Jim (August 24) as my final 2015 HOD post, but an impromptu camping trip this coming weekend helped move my final post up a few days.  The lapse between UTRMinors final regular season posts of the year and the post season gives Jim and I a chance to prepare our off-season spreadsheets for our second go-around with of the UTR Organizational All-Star’s.  Jim continues to work with his TPS formula and I’ve done the same with PAG. We both continue to tweak, turn and dig deeper into finding further quantitative evidence that helps sift out those true under-the-radar stars.

Jim mentioned our off-season schedule. We will more than likely stick with the same schedule we used last year. However, once we decide on a final divisional (and team) schedule, you’ll be notified with specific dates. If our schedule does change, again, we’ll inform readers.

So, to preface tomorrow’s last UTR HOD post, I can speak for Jim when I say ‘Thank you.” We Thank all of our readers for helping carry us through the 2015 season. We’d like to thank those on Facebook and in the Twittersphere for supporting us.  Social media truly is a great thing and it’s helped us to continue pushing through the minor league baseball reporting pack.
