PitchTrak Trial Collection

Enter a unique Trial Name: we suggest to use the pitcher's ID, name, pitch type and date tested.

  • When the pitcher is ready, press the Record Button.
  • When the pitcher has completed the throw, press the Stop Button.

We recommend collecting several trials of the same pitch type.

Once the trials are collected, go into Post Process mode and check that all markers are tracked and identified for the complete movement. You can optionally trim the trial (see Page 4-3 in the Cortex User Manual) as needed.

Event Selection

PitchTrak uses two Events:

  • Foot Contact (FC) which indicates when the front foot first contacts the mound.
  • Ball Release (BR) which indicates when the ball has left the pitcher's hand.
