LOCATION & VELOCITY  TRACKING

Pitching Charts

There are many types of baseball pitching charts being used in the game today. Most of these pitching charts are filled out by traditional methods using a pencil and paper which makes calculating the data time consuming and cumbersome. FastChart has put the Pitch Sequence, Location and Velocity screen together which makes collecting the data much easier. The app will prompt the user to show where the pitch was thrown and add the velocity for that same pitch. The velocity range covers speeds for all competitive levels (45-105 mph) and very pitch type. The data is then calculated and shown in the Cumulative Report and new Game Log  for review of each individual pitcher’s performance.

Getting Started

To track pitches during a game the user will follow each pitch thrown for both teams using the Pitch Sequence area. When the pitch type is selected the app will automatically lead the user to a choice for that pitch. Whether it is a strike, ball or the ball was put into play, the pitch is charted by location and velocity. On the main screen, the locations of each pitch during the game will be shown. After the game, a Cumulative Report is generated with information about every pitch type thrown, the velocities and outcomes. Cumulative Reports are also automatically broken down into “all” batters along with left and right handed batter differences.

How It Works

The Location & Velocity tracks all pitches thrown in sequence and the location in and around the strike zone. A history of pitch locations will be shown on the main page and displayed for each batter. To view the data for each individual pitch, the user can go to the Game Log. In Game Log it allows users to select any pitch and view the details.
