The weather temperature is an important reminder for early season wagering. The colder it is the less the ball travels, thus the less there are damaging hits. The warmer it gets, the more the ball travels, thus there are more damaging hits. Cold weather equals less scoring and warm weather equals more scoring. The charts show damaging hits by temperature and runs scored by temperature. The results are obvious. Starting pitchers have the most effect on these outcomes, but the weather has a significant factor as well. It can be windy too. Wind blowing out has less effect in cold weather but more effect if it is blowing in. Early in the season, make sure to check both the temperature and the wind.
