12. Ballparks of Baseball

Background: This website is about every baseball stadium of  every major league baseball team.

How I will use it: I will use this source by describing that location of players can be crucial to their success in the major league. If a pitcher that pitches to contact a lot and they are in a hitter’s ball park it will greatly affect the pitcher’s statistics because the pitcher will give up a lot of hits. Just as a pitchers ball park would be great for a pitcher who pitches to contact because there will be less home runs hit and more opportunities for the fielders to make plays.

    Currently incomplete. This should contain all 15 of your best sources and thus be the one place your reader can come to see your entire bibliography annotated.

    This is a nicely rounded batch of sources, Eddie. I can see the value of each and that they each serve a different purpose. There appears to be little overlap; they come from a good range of disciplines.

    Please import your ten other best sources to put the whole list together here in one place. I’ve re-titled it for you Annotated Bibliography.

    Provisional grade recorded.
    Better grade available after revision.
