The use of Rapsodo Cameras and Edgertronic Cameras allow coaches and pitchers to work together to design pitches by seeing spin rate, spin direction/axis, pitch velocity, movement profiles, and location, as well as hand position, arm position, and release point via 17,000 frames per second.
Coupling the use of these cameras allows for instant feedback and pitch design that pitchers can use to “tunnel” their pitches, making two or more different pitches seem like the same pitch for long periods leading up to entering the hitting zone.
The issue is these cameras cost $4,000 and $18,000 respectively. Few training facilities, travel, high school, or even college programs can afford to drop $22,000 on pitch design alone. In fact, many cannot even afford the $4,000 it would cost to obtain a Rapsodo camera.
