MLB Pitchers: A Look at the Numbers
Bartev Vartanian, Dataspora
|Baseball enthusiasts and statisticians have found common ground in the field of Sabermetrics – the application of statistics to baseball. Since the installation of the PITCHf/x tracking system in major league ballparks, data has been generated on the type, velocity, and displacement for every pitch thrown in the MLB. We present the findings from an investigation focused on MLB pitchers leveraging this treasure trove of information.
In this presentation we investigate how pitchers generate value. We discuss methods that explore pitching speed and control data simultaneously. We also identify the factors that are most important in determining value generation.
