Using Spray Charts Across The 6-4-3 Charts Interface

Two outs, bases loaded, bottom of the ninth. A line drive is scorched to the gap in left-center. The centerfielder, who “happens” to be shaded slightly to left only has to take a few steps to catch it. Everyone watching chalks it up as a lucky play… but we know differently.

We know that play originated two days prior when an assistant coach was looking at the opposing team’s spray chart and noticed that with runners in scoring position, that particular batter hit 42% of the balls to left field, 36% to left-center, and only 10% to center. The result of this preparation? The centerfielder shifted slightly, and a game-ending out was made.

A baseball or softball team’s season is the cumulation of thousands and thousands of different situations. Being able to sort out those situations in a visual manner (i.e. a spray chart) will help you better understand your opponents and their tendencies.

6-4-3’s Spray Charts give you a unique look at these specific situations so you can better understand your opponent, batter by batter, pitch by pitch.

  • Standard Stats
  • Swing/Pitch Analytics
  • Sabermetics
  • Role (Pitching)
  • Short Game
  • Baserunning

Then sort these sections by a certain situation, including Vs L/R, With 2 Strikes, Last 3 PA, With RISP, and much more. Finally, look over to the bar graph where you can see how a particular player’s stats stack up when compared to their team, conference, and NCAA Division (I, II, or III).

 

The Stat Comparison module allows you to compare the stats between two players (pitcher vs. pitcher or hitter vs. hitter). In this module, you can look at different statistical groups and break those down further by split type.

This module comes in handy when you want to compare two players on your own team in order to make a lineup decision.
