THT: Cold Weather, Positions, and Penalties

This is the appendix to my article today at The Hardball Times.  Below are the smoothed 95% confidence bands of every individual curve shown in the charts you see at THT.  These charts give you an idea of the considerable uncertainty found at five-degree intervals of temperature.  As we would expect, these confidence intervals tighten up between ~60 and ~85 degrees, reflecting the fact that most games are played within this temperature range.  Every five-degree bin is most uncertain at the very cold and very warm temperatures.

I aimed to keep these charts visually similar to those at THT, but there are some differences.  Mainly, you need to watch for different y-axis scales, brought on by samples that are small for some subsets.  One example is the chart below, as there are only so many plate appearances taken by catchers.
