Watch: MLB’s New Player Tracking System

(CBS) In early March, MLB Advanced Media announced it was unveiling a new player tracking system that would was a first of its kind for the regular consumer and change the way scouts and fans evaluate players’ movements on the field.

Essentially, the new technology allows viewers a true evaluation of every detail of the game — be it measuring outfielders’ angles on fly balls, catchers’ throws to cut down potential base steals or analyzing reactions times and acceleration speeds of any given player on the field.

Haven’t seen much of it yet? Check out the video below of Reds speedster Billy Hamilton getting caught stealing by Mets catcher Anthony Recker last night.

Interesting stuff.
