Welcome to the BaseballCloud Inside Pitch! This newsletter is going to be a way for coaches and players to stay up-to-date on what is going on in the BaseballCloud world with new product updates and releases. This newsletter will also feature some content that has recently been posted on the BCBlog and our Twitter account.
Recently one of our former R&D interns, Jonah Simon, was hired by the Detroit Tigers to be a part of their analytics department. He was our second fall intern to land a job with a big league club, and we want to continue to provide an opportunity for students and others to gain experience in the baseball space. We believe that our internship program provides unique access to valuable resources, and we want to continue to push the limits with our products by staying up-to-date with the newest technology and ideologies in the game.
Stay tuned for our 2021 Spring Internship application in the coming weeks. We will be looking to fill the roles of: Date Science Analyst, 3D Software Development, Physics and Engineering, Content Creators, and Social Media. Your research will be published as frequently as you desire on our BaseballCloud Blog. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to be hands-on with our software in an effort to improve our customer experience and enhance your own work.
As we gear up for our official BallR launch, we want to begin to highlight its key features. Starting off with some of our basic visual enhancers, coaches will be able to overlay a clock and axis graphic onto the ball to help show each pitch’s tilt. This visual can help pitchers better understand their ball flight and see what axis is most effective for each of their pitches. Many pitchers have not studied these new ball flight terms, so we believe this visual can help show what the metrics represent. There will be various other visuals available to help you dive deeper into the metrics that are automatically ingested from your ball tracking device. And of course, all of this can be shown in a 360 degree view so that pitchers can visualize what hitters are seeing against them in the box. You can use our free tool, BallR Lite, as you await the full BallR launch.
