I've been working on getting some hitter statistics working with the PITCHf/x I compile (courtesy of Joe Lefkowitz's amazing site).

Since I don't have much more to say, here are MLB-wide leaders and trailers for first-pitch swing percentage (out of total plate appearances, minimum 200, data as of 6/21/10).
