Driveline TRAQ Integration

Driveline TRAQ Integration

Printing out scouting reports and physically handing them to your players is a surefire way for those papers to end up in the bottom of a backpack or on the floor of a bus. And don’t even get us started about getting players to check their email for a scouting report.

That’s why we’ve partnered with Driveline Baseball to integrate 6-4-3 Charts and Driveline TRAQ! With this integration, coaches can now share scouting reports from 6-4-3 Charts directly to a player’s Driveline TRAQ account. Now your players have no excuse for not seeing the scouting reports!

The reports will also be viewable in TRAQ by all coaches and staff. This feature becomes useful when comparing season-to-season on-field stats with off-season player development metrics.

Overall, integrating your 6-4-3 Charts and Driveline TRAQ accounts gives you and your program a more seamless in-season and offseason system of sharing data and reporting!

“The 6-4-3 & [Driveline] TRAQ integration is vital in our player development process. We can now streamline 6-4-3 data into our TRAQ player profiles. This has fast-tracked our player development and will be the gold standard moving forward.”

-Will Hawks, Lipscomb Baseball Pitching Coach

    643 Synergy

    Synergy Video + 6-4-3 Charts: A Winning Combination

    Synergy Sports is the leader in video solutions for NCAA baseball and softball. 6-4-3 Charts is the leader in data visualization. Seems like a natural partnership, huh?

    We thought so too!

    Inside the 6-4-3 Interface (with the Synergy Add-On), you can now interact with Synergy clips the Web App’s All Sprays & Player vs. Player modules (with more functionality coming soon).

    We also automatically connect Synergy clips with all of your uploaded TrackMan SYNC data, and you can interact with Synergy data and video like never before.

    Synergy integration is part of the 643 Synergy Add-On, available with the Plus Package.

    The 643 Synergy Tab


    The Synergy tile is now available in the 6-4-3 Charts interface for all 643 Synergy clients. The Synergy tile allows you to watch all your videos efficiently without leaving the 6-4-3 platform.

    Playlist Manager

    The 643 Synergy Playlist Manager is where you can organize all of your videos into different categories. You can easily populate your playlists while watching videos in the different Synergy modules (or in the Web App).  Once you have your playlists, you can sync them to your team’s Player Portal, so all your athletes have access to the playlists of Synergy videos they need to watch!

    The Pitch Highlighter feature is a great place to start when first interacting with our Synergy tab tools. The three interactive displays focus on the pitcher’s release point, the ball in play (and result) of those pitches, and the frequency of quality contact by the hitter.

    All of these displays can be filtered and interacted with to get a better understanding of what pitches are working for a pitcher and what pitches are getting barrelled.

    And, of course, you can watch all the video associated with selected multiple or individual data points!

    Don’t forget about the cold, hard stats! Learn more about different pitch types by looking at the Pitch Description table. Here you’ll find data on everything from Spin Rate to Induced Vertical Break.

    The middle table shows the Batted Ball Profile, which breaks down the data on balls in play by pitch type. The bottom table details how disciplined hitters are against different pitch types. It’s particularly interesting to look at the different Whiff and Put-Away Percentages to see if the pitcher gets their outs via the heat or the breaking ball!

    The Zone Illustration module is a powerful tool for evaluating a hitter’s strengths and weaknesses around the zone. A quick scroll through the zones and you’ll get a clear picture of where in the zone a hitter tends to swing, make contact, miss, get on base, and make elevated contact. And in the Synergy tile, you are just a click away from watching all the videos associated with a particular zone illustration or a zone within a zone!

    Overall, Zone Illustrator is useful to help develop a quick plan for your pitchers on how to attack your opponent’s lineup.

    What type of pitch is the opposing pitcher going to throw in a 1-2 count against your left-handed hitters? 

    The Pitch Sequencing module allows you to answer these questions by taking a deep dive into the tendencies of any pitcher by count, result, and pitch type. Then, with the LHH vs RHH filtering option, you can create a game plan for all the hitters in your lineup, no matter what pitcher you are facing that day.

    And now, in the Pitch Sequencer module, you can get even more information about a pitcher’s pitch sequencing by looking at the Sequencing Metrics & Sequencing Performance (on 2nd Pitch) charts.

    The Sequencer Metrics chart allows you to quickly look at what pitches are being thrown in certain situations. While the Sequencing Performance (on 2nd Pitch) chart shows you the performance of a pitcher in all their respective two-pitch sequences (e.g. Fastball/Fastball, Slider/Fastball, Changeup/Curveball, etc).

    Our Heat Maps module is an indispensable tool for scouting opponents’ pitchers & hitters (and your pitchers & hitters). With a couple of filter options in place, you’ll be able to quickly identify where a pitcher can execute their pitches and where hitters do damage on them. 

    Pair your insights gained from the Heat Maps with those from the Zone Illustration module, and you’ll have an extremely detailed zone report on a pitcher (or hitter!)

    Take your catcher evaluations to a new level with the Catcher Framing module in the Synergy tab. Quickly visualize where your team’s (or opponent’s) catchers are stealing strikes AND where they are losing close strike/ball calls around the zone.

    And now, with our new Framing+ metric*, you can gain insight into where and when catchers are getting calls while taking the count into consideration.

    *Framing+ measures the relationship between a catcher’s Framing Runs and the League Average Framing Runs for that zone given the number of pitches caught. The League average is normalized to 100, so a Framing+ of 108 means the catcher’s framing has prevented 8% more runs than the league average catcher. Strike rate is context-neutral, but Framing+ takes the count into account. A 3-2 pitch is of higher leverage than an 0-0, or 3-0 pitch, so the result of the 3-2 pitch will have a greater impact on the catcher’s Runs Saved and thus, Framing+.

    COMING SOON!

    COMING SOON!

    Filters are available in all sections of the 643 Synergy tab. The filters are designed to help you narrow down the data so you can see exactly what you want to see. Basically, if there’s a scenario in a game, you can filter down the data to it.

    Plus, you can save your filters for easy access the next time around! 

    The Game Information filter allows you to narrow down the type of game (home/away, date range, and live/intrasquad). Then you can focus on the data by the general segments of the game, including inning and number of outs.

    The Outcome and Pitch Information filters are where you can start getting extremely granular with your filtering. Filter by the outcome, zone, BIP type, pitch type, and count to see how your selected player performs in specific situations.

    The Pitch Specifics filters let you dive even deeper into the ball tracking data by letting you select the range of pitch velocity, spin rate, exit velocity, and launch angle. With this information, you can easily see where in the zone a pitcher is throwing their heat and where in the zone they are giving up big hits!

    Synergy in the 6-4-3 Charts Web App

    Watch your 6-4-3 Web Application come alive with Synergy videos!

    With the 643 Synergy Add-On, users can now interact with their data inside the Web App by watching videos on any pitch/at-bat in the All-Sprays & Player vs. Player modules – with more functionality coming soon.

    Player vs. Player Match-Ups with Synergy

    In the Player vs. Player module in the Web App, you are able to view match-up data between your players and opponents. Now, with Synergy video integration, you can watch those match-ups, including video of the full at-bat. This integration gives you and your team unprecedented ability to prepare for opponents at the collegiate level.

    All-Sprays with Synergy

    Our Synergy video integration allows you to interact with your 6-4-3 Spray Charts like never before. Just hover & click any area of a Spray Chart in the Web App’s All Sprays module, and you’ll get access to all available Synergy video mapped to that area of the chart. Easily see what kind of pitches opponent hitters are blasting to certain parts of the park, and visa versa!

    Synergy + TrackMan + 6-4-3 Charts

    You’re going to be able to do some really cool stuff when you combine the best video platform, with the best ball tracking platform, with the best data visualization platform.

    With the TrackMan SYNC and Synergy Add-Ons, users can visualize all their ball tracking data (from TrackMan) AND watch the video (from Synergy) that corresponds with that data, all in one place (6-4-3 Charts). 

    [Learn more about your data visualization capabilities with our TrackMan Data Visualization tools.]

      Trackman Sync

      Trackman Data Visualization

      With Trackman, your program has all the data you could ever need. The next challenge, though, is what to do with that data. The 6-4-3 Charts’ Trackman Sync add-on solves that challenge by drastically changing the way your program can visualize, interact with, and gain insight from your Trackman data. This is a one-of-a-kind tool that sits within our current 6-4-3 interface and offers you an unprecedented level of interaction.

      Learn more about all the different modules that make up our Trackman Sync platform (formally known as 6-4-3 Sync). See how easily you can start creating detailed scouting reports on opponents and using the data from those reports to make carefully calculated in-game decisions on the field!

      What Can You Do When You Visualize Your Data?

      The Pitcher, Hitter, and Other Data Visualization modules (outlined below) are all available as a single, packaged Trackman Sync add-on. They are not sold separately. 

      Pitcher Data Visualization


      The Pitch Highlighter feature is a great place to start when first interacting with our Trackman Sync tools. The three interactive displays focus on the pitcher’s release point, the ball in play (and result) of those pitches, and the frequency of quality contact by the hitter.

      All of these displays can be filtered and interacted with to get a better understanding of what pitches are working for a pitcher and what pitches are getting barrelled.

      And Now, With the Synergy Add-On...

      Programs with the 6-4-3 Synergy Add-On can now see the video of every pitch inside of Trackman Sync. You can use our interactive filter clipper to select only the pitches, locations, and situations you want to see!

      Don’t forget about the cold, hard stats! Learn more about different pitch types by looking at the Pitch Description table. Here you’ll find data on everything from Spin Rate to Induced Vertical Break.

      The middle table shows the Batted Ball Profile, which breaks down the data on balls in play by pitch type. The bottom table details how disciplined hitters are against different pitch types. It’s particularly interesting to look at the different Whiff and Put-Away Percentages to see if the pitcher gets their outs via the heat or the breaking ball!

      The Pitcher Arsenal module gives you the most in-depth look possible at (an opposing) pitcher’s full repertoire. Pitch-type by pitch-type, visualize each of the pitches by vertical drop, release point, and spin. Pair these data points with our other advanced analytics, and they’ll be no guessing for your hitters at the plate!

      What type of pitch is the opposing pitcher going to throw in a 1-2 count against your left-handed hitters? 

      The Pitch Sequencing module allows you to answer these questions by taking a deep dive into the tendencies of any pitcher by count, result, and pitch type. Then, with the LHH vs RHH filtering option, you can create a game plan for all the hitters in your lineup, no matter what pitcher you are facing that day.

      Sometimes when evaluating a pitcher, the video doesn’t tell the whole story, and the data isn’t visual enough. That’s when the 3D Rendering module comes into play. With 3D Rendering, you can get a 360º view of all the pitches from any at-bat from the season. See how a pitcher tunnels pitches, the hitter’s reaction point, the ball’s spin access & movement, and much more. 

      You can view the pitches from any angle, but our favorite is viewing them from the LHH or RHH batter’s boxes!

      Our Heat Maps module is an indispensable tool for scouting opponents’ pitchers (and pitchers). With a couple of filter options in place, you’ll be able to quickly identify where a pitcher can execute their pitches and where hitters do damage on them. 

      Pair your insights gained from the Heat Maps with those from the Zone Illustration module, and you’ll have an extremely detailed zone report on a pitcher (or hitter!)

      Hitter Data Visualization


      Labeled Pitch Highlighter in the 6-4-3 Charts’ Interface, you can also use this module to evaluate hitters. By just scrolling over the spray chart, you can see the pitch location and type that correlates to a specific ball in play. 

      If you really want to dive into the data, you can check out the Contact Quality for each of the hitter’s balls in play (e.g. Barrels, Flares, Topped, Weak Contact, etc.)

      Finally, this module lets you look right at the hitter’s Batter Ball Profile and Plate Discipline so you can learn more about their Ground Ball vs Line Drive Percentage or Chase Percentage, among other advanced statistics.

      And Now, With the Synergy Add-On...

      Programs with the 6-4-3 Synergy Add-On can now see the video of every pitch, every at-bat, every swing. You can use our interactive filter clipper to select only the pitches, locations, and situations you want to see!

      Finally, this module lets you look right at the hitter’s Batter Ball Profile and Plate Discipline so you can learn more about their Ground Ball vs. Line Drive Percentage or Chase Percentage, among other advanced statistics.

      The Zone Illustration module is a powerful tool for evaluating a hitter’s strengths and weaknesses around the zone. A quick scroll through the first nine illustrations and you’ll get a clear picture of where in the zone a hitter tends to swing, make contact, miss, get on base, and make elevated contact. Overall, the Zone Illustrator is a great tool to help develop a quick plan for your pitchers on how to attack your opponent’s lineup.

      Building off the Pitch Highlighter and Zone Illustrator module, Heat Maps for hitters helps visualize exactly how a hitter is getting pitched to, where they are swinging, and where they are making contact.

      With the available Outcome & Pitch filters, the Heat Maps module becomes a valuable tool when scouting opponents. With a couple of filter options (e.g. pitch velocity, count, or pitch zone), you’ll be able to quickly identify holes in the hitter’s swing, as well as areas in the zone your pitchers should avoid. 

      Labeled Pitch Sequencing in the 6-4-3/Trackman Sync Interface, you can use this module to study a hitter’s Count Progressions. This module allows you to quickly see what pitches a hitter has faced broken down by count. You can delve deeper into the data by filtering for handedness of the pitcher, pitch outcome, and pitch type. This is particularly useful if you preparing to call pitches.

      Filter options are available on all our Trackman Visualization modules. The filters are designed to help you narrow down the data so you can see exactly what you want to see. Basically, if there’s a scenario in a game, you can filter down the data to it.

      Plus, you can save your filters for easy access the next time around!

      The Game Information filters allow you first to narrow down the type of game (home/away, date range, and live/intrasquad). Then you can narrow down the data by the general segments of the game, including inning, number of outs, and LHP/RHP.

      The Outcome and Pitch Information filters are where you can start getting extremely granular with your filtering. Filter by the outcome, zone, BIP type, pitch type, and count to see how your selected player performs in specific situations.

      The Pitch Specifics filters let you dive even deeper into the ball tracking data by letting you select the range of pitch velocity, spin rate, exit velocity, and launch angle. With this information, you can easily see where in the zone a hitter is vulnerable to certain pitches, as well as where they do the most damage
