When you log into a player’s profile on BaseballCloud, you will find that it is broken down into several tabs.
This post will go over a key component of nearly all of these pages.
The Strike Zone plot, sometimes referred to as just ‘Zone’ or ‘K-Zone’, simply shows the locations of every pitch thrown in a session or group of sessions from the pitcher’s perspective. The video below will show how you can select and deselect pitch types, and hover over pitches to dive deeper into the metrics and results of each offering.
Not only is the strike zone plot interactive, it also acts as an advanced filter for the rest of the page. Users can use BC’s built-in zone filters or drag custom sections of the zone to find out how their pitches are playing in different areas. The following video will show both of these functions in action on the ‘Pitch Arsenal’ tab of a pitcher’s profile. Notice the ‘Exit Velocity Against’ changes that immediately appear after changing from the ‘Heart’ of the zone to the ‘Shadow’ section of the zone.
The Strike Zone visual on BaseballCloud can provide huge amounts of insight for pitchers and hitters. Here are a few questions to explore using this feature and all of its capabilities.
The list goes on and on! Check back soon for a look at more present and future BaseballCloud tools in our next BCTips post.
