Intro to Biomechanics Using PitchAI: Exercise

Introduction to

Biomechanics Using PitchAI

Mike Sonne, PhD / Colin McKinnon, PhD / Elora Brenneman Wilson, PhD


The easiest way to learn about the biomechanics of pitching is to look at pitching biomechanics data. Before you get started in this education module, we’d like you to do some homework. Call on any pitcher you might be working with and record them throwing in PitchAI. For their first pitch, have them throw off a mound, with 50% of their maximum intensity. Then, have them throw at 75% of their maximum intensity. Finally, have them throw as hard as they can. We’re going to look at these three reports as we analyze our PitchAI metrics.
