Charting Pitches – Want to Help?
Okay, so, if you haven’t noticed, I’ve gotten into this whole Charting Felix thing. I’ve now discovered that mlb.TV archives the game footage off of Fox’s broadcasts, which means if I chart off the archive, I get radar readings. So, I’m now putting together a plan to create a Felix database, charting every pitch he throws this season.
I’ve created a fairly easy-to-use excel spreadsheet to record the data. The problem is time – I don’t have enough to go back and rewatch all his starts. So, if you have mlb.tv and want to volunteer to chart a game, email us and I’ll send you the spreadsheet and a date of one of his starts to watch.
After we get all his previous starts logged, I’ll keep charting the rest of his starts, and we’ll put together a database of Felix’s pitches for the year. Could be a really interesting tool.
