Why ChangeUp?

From school teams to travel teams to all-star teams, players frequently pitch for two or more teams at the same time, resulting in an increased level of tracking complexity.  For baseball professionals, it can be risky to rely on athletes or parents to accurately record and report pitch loads incurred outside of their purview.  Athletes want to compete.  Parents sometimes lose sight of the bigger picture.  It is often up to coaches to help them keep the athletes' health and long-term performance in mind.

While pitch count restrictions are in place to protect players from injury due to overuse, they aren't enough as every player’s composition and stamina is different.  The simple truth is that simply because a guideline or restriction indicates that a certain amount of pitches can be thrown in a given session, it doesn’t mean that they should.

Enter ChangeUp.

In addition to tracking pitch counts and pitcher availability across multiple teams and leagues, ChangeUp records several key metrics at regular intervals during each pitching session and feeds that information into algorithms that are used as a form of predictive analytics to indicate the efficiency of various types of pitches and overall effectiveness & stamina as a pitcher gets deeper into an outing.  Translating to what is essentially an ever-evolving personalized pitch count guideline, ChangeUp analytics exist to track player stamina and performance over time and are intended to provide metrics for coaches and parents to to use in addition to pitch count limits and visual cues to determine when to make a change and remove a pitcher from a game with a goal of promoting player safety.
