VMI's Pitch-Mix "Rating"

Posted: 2021-02-18 11:21:45 (ET)    [ 546 views ]

Pitch-Mix Rating


For 2021 we are going to attempt to expand the capability of VMI's Pitch-Mix "Rating."  I couldn't come up with a more suitable name for the calculation we introduced in 2018. The Pitch-Mix is extremely important in baseball from high school competition through the professional ranks.  As you, as well as, everyone experienced with playing or observing the sport knows, a pitcher must change the speed, trajectory and location of his pitches or the hitter will make him pay.  So, our pitch-mix formula looks at:

1) which pitch is the pitcher's primary or go to pitch

2) which pitch does he use to create groundball outs;

3) the type of pitch he uses for "off-plate" variation and;

4) the balance of his repertoire. 

The number of pitches of each type he typically delivers allows us to identify him as a Tight, Loose, Reverse, or Knuckleball pitcher.  See "Detailed Match-Ups" for a description of each.  The Rating we are refering to, is a calculated number showing precisely how strongly he holds to the identifying Pitch-Mix type.  

We will keep you informed every week or two on our progress, and are eagerly looking forward to spring training and April 2021.
