Organizational Park Factors

I've been spending way too much time calculating the organization's minor league park factors. I want them to help us look at the environment our prospects have played in. Dan Szymborski at BBTF has saved a ton of work (I'm not even through Hudson Valley yet) with his 2008 Minor League Park Multipliers.

One-year multipliers:
TeamRunsHits2BHRBBSO
Durham (AAA)1.031.001.011.251.081.02
Montgomery (AA)1.061.031.051.161.040.95
Vero Beach (A+)1.050.991.001.221.080.98
Columbus (A)0.980.990.991.170.971.02
Hudson Valley (A-)1.070.961.050.751.041.08

Three-year multipliers:
TeamRunsHits2BHRBBSO
Durham (AAA)1.031.001.001.191.031.06
Montgomery (AA)1.021.021.041.060.980.99
Vero Beach (A+)1.061.010.991.301.031.01
Columbus (A)0.980.980.981.090.991.02
Hudson Valley (A-)1.020.991.040.871.011.10

Outliers are bolded. Since I can't vouch for the accuracy, I'll probably keep doing my own project, but I will say Dan has always done fine work in the past. This should give you an accurate idea of the kind of parks where our minor leaguers play.
