The Grid Pitching System

TAKING THE GUESSWORK OUT OF PITCHER TRAINING AND DEVELOPMENT

The Grid Pitching System permits coaches to better illustrate the benefits of their instruction when the data supports their claims during workouts. They can test the effectiveness of their tips instantaneously and with the benefit of video playback.

All the pitches thrown through The GRID are recorded indefinitely and displayed via an easy-to-use graphic interface.

WHAT IT IS

A STATE-OF-THE-ART PITCHER TRAINING TOOL

Designed by Aerospace Engineers and Professional Pitchers, the GRID System uses optical lasers to capture speed, break, trajectory and deceleration of pitches at a level of accuracy that vastly exceeds existing radar-based systems.

Coupled with a hi-speed, high definition video feed, the system is able to instantaneously link pitcher mechanics with pitch movement to enable diagnostic capabilities never before realized.

HOW IT WORKS

As pitches are thrown through the system, 3 banks of laser sensors monitor the flight of the pitch to provide precise trajectory, speed and location. A fixed, high-definition camera is used to record the pitcher’s motion. The data captured by the lasers is instantaneously “attached” to the video of the pitcher’s motion, enabling unprecedented diagnostic assessment of the effect of pitching mechanics on the flight of the baseball.
