    I am not sure where I can find accurate wind data regarding the direction of it. For example, here on RG along with about half of the mlb weather websites it said the wind was blowing out in ATL today, while in the other half it said it was blowing in. Petco park in SD also has the wind blowing out here on RG, but blowing from L to R on many other websites and a couple saying it is going from R to L. I’ve noticed that there are discrepancies daily in these two parks, and i’m sure there are discrepancies in other parks as well that I just haven’t noticed yet.

    EDIT: I am aware of all of the existing sites, just don’t know which ones are accurate since they all provide different directions for some parks. Also, I’m only interested in finding an accurate site, I am not interested in people telling me about wind not mattering lol

    Yes but he doesn’t specifically state the wind direction for every game

    Everything I seen said ATL was blowing in 7-10 with adjustments. St.Louis has a cross wind going and that was from RG Kevin Roth. but if you want accurate weather, maybe this http://www.mlbdfsweather.com/mlb-stadium-weather/

    Except here on RG it said and still says blowing out. And it’s hard to trust a site that still lists Turner Field as ATL’s park

    If you care about wind direction that’s not mentioned by Roth it’s probably not substantial enough to matter. Your research time could be spent on more important things

    i remember when i used to care about winds ans temp. and then 15-12 happened at coors 2 weeks ago in 38 degree temps with wind blowing in……never make dfs baseball decisions based on wind or temps

    dailybaseballdata.com or go straight to weatherunderground

    That site is pretty good but I became sceptical a few days ago with their directions for suntrust and petco. Might just end up going directly to weather sites if there are no fully trust worthy mlb specific ones.

    The source of confusion here is probably the change in ballpark. Turner Field home to centerfield was mostly north, and home to centerfield at Suntrust Park is mostly South. That would explain why it’s messed up for Atlanta.

    I notice Kevin Roth also had Turner Park on a tweet with a radar screencap, and the new stadium is about 10-12 miles to the Northwest. Usually not a huge deal, but with Atlanta’s popup showers 10 miles can make a pretty significant difference.

    Yeah I agree with you for sure. The way the parks are facing is different too, which explains the different wind directions provided for Atlanta by website
