Abstract

Imagine you are up to bat in a major league baseball game. Would you rather face a pitch with smaller curvature or smaller break? Would you know the difference? In this paper we will derive a model for the path of a pitch based on actual data from MLB.com's GameDay™ feature. Then, employing our model, we shall analyze the curvature and break of the pitch.
