Sometimes they might get warmup pitches, but usually it is just in game pitches. It does take an operator to control everything. Not that anyone's asking, but it is very costly.
I do know that this TM data is very important to MLB clubs. They pay TM a lot to have access to the data compiled at PG events. Next year, that model will include college programs, but only the biggest programs will be able to afford it.
I think everyone in baseball is starting to understand the importance of all this new technology. No doubt it is helping some players that previously might have been overlooked. We have learned a lot with our partnerships with TrackMan, Zepp, and others. Years ago we used the standard numbers associated with the 5 tools. Now we sometimes have 10 times those numbers to look at. We now understand spin rates and how certain spin rates create results. Why the slower velocity guy might be harder to hit than the higher velocity guy. We used to rely on eyesight to evaluate things like movement of pitches and speed of the bat. Now there is equipment that does it more accurately.
PG, there are some fascinating articles out there on spin rate and useful spin. I know Dr. Alan Nathan is delving into this. And ii believe is partnering with trackman in some way. This information is amazing and now we as coahes (and parents) need to figure out how to teach to it. Spin rates and spin angles is an absolute revelation for pitchers and pitching coaches. Average rpm's spell death for the kid with average or even a little above average velocity. But out of the norm spin rates - higher ir lower - confuse the batter because the pitch d I es not look materially different to the eye coming in but simply is not where.the batter expects it to be. Leading to swing and miss pop ups or ground balls. I for one am ecstatic about this cutting edge technology you are bringing. And I am begging my organization to send us to lake point next spring. Can you pay for your son's data? Is there another way to get your son's data other than going to lake point?
