Here is another example of a statistic that can only be derived from knowing event data.
Clutch Game Winning is described in the previous post. I thought it would be interesting to run post season event data through this algorithm to see who were the best clutch game winning hitters with respect to giving his team the lead when it mattered in post season play. The events included in this set are for all post season play from 1903 to 2012. Modern era players have had more opportunities since there are so many more playoff games with divisional and now wild card playoff games.
This list differs from the RISP post season list previously posted which measures runs above average in runners in scoring position. A batter must put his team in the lead to earn one of these. A clutch game winning stat increments once for each occurrence whereas the RISP stat counts batted in runs and compares that to league averages.
