Pitching Assessments

stop guessing. start knowing.


 

Take the guesswork out of your development and start your path to real development with a comprehensive pitching assessment. We’ll gather a combination of slow motion video and raw data to provide you with a comprehensive overview of how you can improve as a pitcher. Slow motion video allows us to analyze your delivery and spot inefficiencies in your throwing motion. We use a slow motion video capture application to record your footage and then send you the full analysis with overlays and explanations. Raw data provides a more granular view of what your pitches are doing after they leave your hand and how you can improve them.

the following metrics are gathered during the assessment:

 
Release Velocity is tracked via radar gun as well as via tech enabled baseball.

Extension is the distance from the pitching rubber to where the pitcher releases the pitch. In other words, it is a measure of how close they are able to release the pitch to the plate.

Release Spin Rate is the rate at which the ball spins out of the hand. The higher the spin rate, the better.

Delivery Timing is the measurement of time from first movement to ball release. A lower delivery time means a faster delivery.

Spin direction indicates the axis in which the ball rotates. This give a much better idea as to how the pitch moves and why there may be inconsistencies in movement.

Reach to Release is elapsed time from reach back to ball release. A good indicator of arm velocity.

Time to plate is the amount of time from the pitcher’s first movement until the ball hit the glove. It is a good indicator for how well a pitcher is able to manage baserunners.

By shooting video at 240 frames per second we can take a very close look fine movements throughout the pitcher’s delivery, not observable by the human eye.
