On another board we were talking about the reason a coach would look at the score sheet. Once coach said: …Finally, in recapping the game, I would note trends in my head. For example, with pitch counts recorded, who is allowing themselves to get deep in the count and who is swinging at first pitches. While I am in favor of being aggressive at the plate, sometimes a player who is in a slump might need to learn to work a count a little more.
I decided to try to see if there was a way to look at that. Please see the attachment.
It’s pretty simple in that all I’ve done is see how many PAs ended on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, … pitches and computed a percentage of the total PAs for each. I also added some typical performance measuring metrics. For batting I added overall BA, OBP, SlgP, OPS, and RC. For pitching I added opponent’s BA, opponents OBP, and WHIP.
