The steroid era is over but nobody told the hitters

Via the invaluable High Heat Stats, a chart of home runs as a proportion of plate appearances over time.  Home run hitting increased sharply in the mid-1990s, and has stayed elevated ever since.  If you think that increase marks the beginning of “The Steroid Era,” do you think The Steroid Era is still going on?  Because home runs are still flying out of the park at an elevated rate.

There’s good stuff on this at Fangraphs, too.
