We’ve added more stats! GameChanger has added some of our most popularly requested stats – BABIP, GB%, FB%, and strikeouts looking(K-L) v.s. strikeouts swinging(K-S) – to a player’s stats for both hitting and pitching.
Batting Average on Balls in Play (“BABIP”) is a statistic that measures success on batted balls that remain in the field of play. BABIP is a strong guideline to measure quality, consistent contact with the ball, resulting in maximized run production for the team.
FB% & GB%
Fly Ball Percentage (“FB%”) is the percentage of balls hit in play that are fly balls and Ground Ball Percentage (“GB%”) is the percentage of balls hit in play that are ground balls. FB% and GB% can be used to identify tendencies in your hitters, giving every coach valuable insights into what drills and techniques each player should be working on in practice.
Strikeouts Looking (“K-L”) is the number of times a player has struck out looking at the 3rd strike. Coaches can use Strikeouts Looking to identify what players need to work on expanding the strike zone with two strikes.
Strikeouts Swinging (“K-S”) is the number of times a player has struck out swinging at the 3rd strike. Coaches can use K-S to identify which players are striking out looking at a high rate and can focus their practice drills on shortening their swing with 2 strikes, and focusing on making contact.
