Projects: Pitch Recognition

Pitch Recognition in Baseball

    Sports science research in baseball has shown that expert batters can:

      - Pick up cues in the pitcher's deliver and early ball flight.
      - Tell the type of pitch and where it will end up over the plate.
      - Decide early whether to swing or adjust their swing.

    My research uses video-computer technology based on the methods used in sports science laboratories to TEST and TRAIN pitch recognition. I also adapt standard batting cage and bullpen stand-in drills to transfer computer skills to batting skills.
