Is it a thing? If so, does it matter? We’ve been very heads down until now and not really looking around.
I took the helpful suggestion to check the PG leaderboards. Most of the kids show up consistently across events. There is one event though where each top Velo reading is consistently 3-4 MPH faster than any other pitch ever thrown by the first 5 pitchers I checked.
More a curiosity than anything else but it got me wondering.
Yes, it’s a thing. But it doesn’t matter as much as you might think. College coaches and MLB scouts are going to take their own readings with their own guns if they have interest. They don’t trust the metrics that are published by PG, PBR or anyone else. There are way too many inaccuracies
