Software Made Easy
We've made our software easy enough for everyone to use. You select the pitcher, and you select your session. Creating a session is easy and we've added extra zones to accomodate for the riseball in softball.
Create Your Own Training Sessions
Creating your own sessions is as easy as putting the mouse on the zone and clicking the mouse. A listing of pitches will come up, you can add pitches to the listing if you like, and when you've entered all the pitches you want, simply select Save Session. You can go back and edit that session later, and you can use any session entered for all of your pitchers.
Pitch by Pitch, the Software Requests and Records every Pitch
Once you click "Begin" the computer will walk the pitcher through each pitch entered in the session. The software shows the pitcher's name, the session name, and then charts all of the information thrown during the session, including pitch location, velocity (optional) and it will give the pitcher a rating based on error distance of the pitch, with a 100 rating for hitting the request spot. The rating quickly diminishes as the pitcher's error increases, with a miss of 20+ inches having a rating of 0.
When the training session is complete, there are 6 printouts available and sessions are saved. See the printout example below. Page 1 is a summary, page 2 is a pitch listing that shows the pitch sequence entered and the requested location - exactly as you entered it into the training software program. The accuracy and velocity information is then added for each pitch thrown. Page 3 shows the History Plot for the pitches thrown, with darkened circles indicating the accuracy. Page 4 is the Bulls Eye Plot, which shows the pinpoint accurate pitches, its an easy way to see how accurate the player is throwing. Page 5 is a velocity graph and page 6 is an accuracy graph.
