On Baseball Analysts: Pitch Location

Thought I’d mention that I have an article on Pitch Location running this week on Baseball Analysts. Here’s a little teaser….

“How often have you heard a player attribute his success to “throwing more pitches inside,” or heard a manager say a pitcher was “hitting his spots?” Pretty much everyone talks about pitch location, but how often is it actually quantified? Thankfully, our pals over at Baseball Info Solutions tracked the x-y coordinates of nearly all 1.5 million pitches thrown the past two seasons. Let’s start by looking at the average major league pitch locations broken down by batter/pitcher handedness.”
