More about Home Runs Allowed Leaders
Pitching home runs allowed leaders, quite simply, allow the most home runs. They are most likely to pitch in hitter-friendly stadiums, have a low ground ball to fly ball ratio, and are slightly more likely to pitch in the American League, which generally sees more home runs than the National League. The very best pitchers in baseball do not allow a whole lot of home runs, but the leaders in this statistic should not be considered the worst pitchers in the game, especially if they can minimize other baserunners and be more likely to allow home runs with few or no baserunners on base.
