Top 15 College Baseball Recruiting Questions (Pitchers' Parents)

Baseballthinktank ·
If you have questions about your pitcher, you're going to love this... Recently I opened a discussion from parents about their sons' (pitchers) concerning the college baseball recruiting process... Here is the Q/A, enjoy! 1. At what point does it make sense to contact a college? Velocity? Grade? Size? etc. I wouldn't waste your time early in the process unless you have a burning desire to attend a specific school, UNLESS you have desirable velocity in the range of 85 +. Obviously, lefties...

Is FIP any better than ERA or WHIP?

Stats4Gnats ·
Not being someone who gives up easily on just about anything, I thought I’d pursue the FIP thing that JH got started in another thread a bit further. In order to do that, I needed to compute a “League ERA” in order to get the constant used to compute FIP. Since HS ball doesn’t have a league in the sense of American or National league the way MLB does, I had to go to the closest thing to it that was available. I chose to use DI schools in our section. Our section has 195 schools, 49 of which...
