Analytics have changed baseball forever.
The source for MLB has been StatCast, which succeeded the earlier Pitch-fx system.
StatCast is mind-blowingly impressive, with its analytics on pitching, hitting, fielding, base running and more.
The hardware that makes it possible is also mind-blowing, shown here.
Exact cost per installation has not been published, but is easily $100,000's per stadium.
StatCast and other high-end baseball analytics are for the Pro's and the Elite teams.
And unlike the pro tools, SmartPitch uses no special hardware -- just the phone in your pocket -- and is nearly free. So much #betterthanradar.
