I was wondering if anyone could help me.....



So as many of you might have noticed, I've been doing PitchFX analysis of various Met players over the last 3 or 4 weeks.  PitchFX is great in that it measures how a pitch moves and where it actually goes.  However, it does NOT show us where the catcher sets up his target for each pitch.  So I can tell you where a pitch went, but not where it was supposed to go. 

 

SO, I was wondering if any of you would be willing to, during each Met Game, look where the catcher sets up behind the plate and write it down.  In other words if the catcher sets up low and inside, you'd write down "Low and Inside" for that pitch.  The goal would be to have a rough estimate of where each pitch in a Met Game was intended to go.  Then using PitchFX, i could compile a rough estimate of how accurate certain pitchers were with their pitches. 

 

I'm looking to see if we could get a few people to help with this so as to make this as accurate as possible.  If you'd be interested in doing this (which would simply be writing down something while you watch the Met Games) and helping, please let me know by emailing me at jsmolow AT yu DOT edu (replacing "AT" with @ and "DOT" with "." of course.)
