On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the homerun data set which pertains to Sample Data on Home Runs Hit By Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa in 1998.. The homerun data set is found in the Zelig R package. Try to load the homerun data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("homerun"). This may load the data into a variable called homerun. If R says the homerun data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("Zelig") and then attempt to reload the data with library("Zelig") followed by data("homerun"). Perhaps strangley, if R gives you no output after entering a command, it means the command succeeded. If it succeeded you can see the data by typing homerun at the command-line which should display the entire dataset.
If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the homerun R data set. The size of this file is about 7,582 bytes.
