I did this with my ballpark hoping to add to my left-handed hitting when left-hand killing pitching teams come to town.

But I have no clue what I really did.

So, definitely, I do not recommend just plucking park settings from someone and assuming it will work. I think the big takeaway is that you really just need a coherent strategy to score runs and prevent runs. Anybody whose team is built well around a particular strategy seems to have success.

EDIT: Also, as an interesting note, we recently had an OL team which got misplaced into a generic Perfect League after promotion from Diamond. That team made the playoffs in their random Perfect league. Then, upon re-entry to the Perfect OL League, they went 60-102 (or something like that) and were instantly demoted back to Diamond. I don't think the rostered players in OL are anywhere near the quality of an average random playoff team in Perfect, but nearly every regular player in Perfect OL has a refined strategy. It just goes to show that, except for some obvious extreme cases, park factors are much more important than player quality. Even the lone Perfect Big Walt that is in the league hasn't had the ERA crown in 4 years.
That team in question is the Blitzkrieg Boppers. We favor a neutral park approach with an emphasis on keeping home runs to a minimum, so against all the other strategies it may have been easy to see why we thrived in a normal perfect league, then got smacked around in the OL/NFTP league.

We're hoping to make our way back to perfect at the first time of asking. Pulling 99 Jackie Robinson on Sunday really helps our cause.

I am probably over-thinking this, but it seems that teams that favor LHB in their ballpark factors would also need LHP to counter the opposing teams.

Because wouldn't the opposing team play more RHB, putting them at a disadvantage in the LHB ballpark?

You basically gave lefties more singles than righties, but for extra base hits both sides will be inflated.

You’re not overthinking it at all IMO. My top 2 starters are lefties for this reason.

Absolutely. If you are playing lefty hitters in a lefty ballpark, you want to have a starting pitching staff of lefties as well, so that teams you go up against will bat righties or face a disadvantage of having their lefty batters up against your lefty pitchers.

In fact, if you are going to be traveling to a lefty ballpark, you want to put lefty SPs up for the same reason... sending your right-handed SP up against it is just playing into their hands. This is often too much micromanagement until playoffs, but can definitely play a factor there.
