MLB Statcast: A Fancy New Way to Watch Baseball Highlights Online
By Mike Cardillo
Major League Baseball Advanced Media unfurled its fancy new “Statcast” form of highlights. Here’s Statcast in action on Yasiel Puig’s great catch vs. the Mets earlier this year. Baseball and math — together at last!
This new feature should appeal to folks wondering about the science behind human beings doing spectacular acts on the baseball diamond.
Personally, this clip made me nostaglic for my TI83 graphing calculator. If you’re interested in an admittedly, non-sarcastic read on Statcast, Sports Illustrated has you covered.
