Today, we’ll look at whether 1991 first-round draft pick, two-time All-Star and “member of the tribe” Shawn Green performed better or worse on the Sabbath during his career. We parsed out all of Green’s games by Sabbath/non-Sabbath and here is what it showed:
|SABBATHMETRICS: SHAWN GREEN|
|HR% of PA||4.2%||3.9%||4.1%|
|BB% of PA||9.3%||9.5%||9.3%|
|SO% of PA||16.3%||17.2%||16.5%|
Green had a career 120 OPS+, but the Sabbath seemed to diminish his offense quite a bit, as he hit 21 points lower and lost 24 points on his slugging in such games. He homered slightly less often and struck out more often during Sabbath games.
