Speed + Air Resistance = Ball Movement
Ball Movement = More Hits or Fewer Hits
The VMI is an index that gauges the degree of adjustment for hitters
Here's the thing: No player can adjust to substantially more ball movement from friction in the air, without several games of exposure. This fact then causes the following to occur. The entire team is affected at the same time causing more popups against the fastball and adds to the losses, because the team does not get the normal contribution from several random players.
Altitude Pressure, Temperature, Humidity dictate movement for the pitcher
We have gauged every hop, bend and lift in every park so that you can have clear insight into a player's daily struggle to perform in all the variations.
For Pro Players and Managers our index gives you a heads-up prior to game time. When your personal index is high, we have some VMI tips for you to ponder. When your personal VMI is low, we have some focus concerns to make you and your team aware.
For Fantasy Players - - Optimize your fantasy lineup with this real world "hitter's park" index.
