When it comes to professional athletes, however, the weak links in a pitcher’s delivery can be tougher to see, even at 250 to 1000 frames per second. The stat reports are a more sensitive tool for evaluating subtle differences, and making small incremental improvements can have a relatively large impact for professional players who are trying to gain an extra edge. The statistical results from different motion-analysis sessions over time can be compared to track a player’s progress, and objectively evaluate how well a player is taking to his coaching and conditioning regimen.

The report is broken down into separate sections for each of three pitch types, including fastball, breaking ball, and off-speed. Each pitch type has a link to its own page, with videos and 3-D stills that are pre-set to strategic viewing angles, as well as color-specific skeletons for each. The motion-analysis multimedia reports also have a comparison page, with links that show skeletal overlays of the player’s fastball on top of his breaking ball, off-speed pitch, or any combination therein. This technique is also used to show 3-D skeleton comparisons from different motion-capture sessions, so that we can track progress or changes in a pitcher’s mechanics over time.

In reality, however, some of the links in the chain are much more difficult to coordinate than others. As can be seen from looking at the time ranges within the progression illustrated in Figure 3-1, the events near the end of the chain occur in much smaller time intervals. A pitcher has approximately one full second to get from first movement into foot strike. In the process, he covers three links in the chain during that time. 30 seconds to cover the next four links in the chain. The events that should occur after foot strike are the most likely to fall out of sequence, partially as a result of this relative proximity in time, but also as a consequence of how efficient the dynamic of the kinetic chain is as the critical events play out.
