_______

 

There are 3 sections on the report:

  • Mechanical Analysis
  • Pitch Design Recommendations
  • Pitch Location Recommendations

Mechanical Analysis

Coaches receive our perspective on each of their pitcher’s deficiencies, notes on how we’d train them in-gym, and videos that add visuals to those notes to help explain the concepts. Since January 2018, we have collected hundreds of thousands of data points on tests and retests of thousands of pitchers ranging from youth to big-leaguers.

 

As our data (and ability to analyze that data) grew, so did our understanding of what really matters in pitching mechanics. While our trainers analyzing video can’t get as exact as our motion capture lab, they can still deliver impactful suggestions on a pitcher’s mechanics.

Pitch Design Recommendations

Our analytics team developed a tool that takes outcomes from almost a million pitches, finds the pitches that are similar to pitches we input, and calculates what changes to make to improve the quality of the inputted pitches. Get realistic pitch design recommendations that will make impactful changes in the quality of your pitchers’ pitches.

Pitch Location Recommendations

This tool takes outcomes from over 3.5 million pitches, finds the pitches that are similar to pitches we input, and then calculates the batted ball outcomes for that pitch thrown anywhere in the zone.

 

The data is then presented as a heat map that shows where that pitch performed well, and where it didn’t with simple and accurate plots.

Hitting

We created the Team Hitting Development Report to provide coaches with another tool to help them make their hitters better. The reports provide coaches with individualized and easy to understand information highlighting strengths, and weaknesses for each player, as well as how their data stacks up against professional averages.

  • Drill and training suggestions 

Swing Metric Analysis

The report provides hitters with a full breakdown of their swing metrics and how their bat moves through space using a bat sensor. Whether you use Blast Motion, Diamond Kinetics, Motus Batting you will be able to see what your hitters are good at, how they can improve and how they compare to their peers.

Batted Ball Analysis

The report breaks down each batter’s batted ball metrics and explains how they stack up against professionals. This analysis can be done with any way you track batted ball data (HitTrax, Rapsodo, Trackman, etc.) We use this information to track peak and average exit velocities, average launch angle and launch angle on hard hit balls, swing depth and how each hitter hits the ball to different parts of the field and in different parts of the strike zone.

Swing Analysis

This is where our trainers will tie everything together. In this section of the report, Driveline hitting trainers will look at each hitter’s video and break down how they are moving. With the video, the trainer will highlight any swing flaws and explain how the swing flaws tie into their batted ball and swing metrics.

Drills and Training Suggestions

Each hitter will receive specific training implements and suggested drills we use at Driveline to develop our hitters. The goal is to make your life easier as a coach by eliminating the guesswork. Receive a detailed report down each player and to help you decide the most effective way to get the most out of your practice time.
