Nice work! What is the role of the hitter in these pitches? There are many pitches that never were strikes and just get flailed at… in which case it is more of a bad swing than a good pitch. #11 is a good example of this. If the hitter sits there with the bat on his shoulder we call it a bad waste pitch! This could just as well be a list of bad at bats. You know what would be really interesting would be great pitches that get smashed. Very cool video though. Those gifs never load correctly for me. Even as a frequent visitor, I pretty much never see the pitch of the day gifs. Happy New Year!
