Tools

 

These are various tools I have made over the months. I have recently gone through to update many of them, and you can see the dates of these updates next to each link.

 
 
Pitch Movement Tool

The Complete Pitch MovemeNT Tool

This tool has it all, but as a result it is a big file that takes some time to load.  You'll need to be patient and allow it to load, but I promise it is worth it.  The main image shows horizontal and vertical movement for each pitch thrown between 2015 and 2016.  There are filters for pitcher name, release point, pitch speed, pitch type, spin rate, exit velocity, launch angle, batter handedness, pitcher handedness, and pitch result.  That's a lot of filters!

Home Run Tool

Home Run Calculator

A calculator I've made to estimate the likelihood of a ball with given an exit velocity and launch angle registering a home run. As you go left to right you odds of a home run with a given velocity, then again with the velocity and the given vertical launch angle, and then again with exit velocity, vertical launch angle and horizontal launch angle. The calculator automatically rounds the input numbers.

Vertical Launch Angle Tool
 

Vertical Launch Angle and Value Tool.

The data used to create this chart is outdated. xOBA, which is used to measure value in this case, has undergone several iterations and improvements since this chart was created. Regardless, you can see how certain launch angles change value with respect to individual ball parks, batters, and pitchers.

Launch Angle And Exit Velocity Tool

Launch Angle and Exit Velocity Donut Charts For Batters And Pitchers

The data used for these charts is also outdated, but it provides data from both 2015 and a large fraction of 2016 in a visually appealing manner.
