It's coming. BP does a nice recap of the presentations from yesterday's Sportvisionís PITCHf/x summit.

4:09: Allen reconstructs the paths taken to a ball from the time it left the bat to the time the play was completed. Includes image of where each fielder started before each play. CF is a bimodal distribution, while other positions look more like smears. The whole thing looks something like a Rorschach blot. Allen zooms in to show each fielder starting point by position, broken down by batter handedness. FIELDf/xstacy.

You know, it's exciting that we'll be able to really, truly quantify fielders' abilities in the field. At the same time, it's kind of scary that this kind of technology will be tracking players and producing stats.

There was a nice discussion at one point which touched on one of my biggest areas of interest, separating positioning and range (and within range, reaction, route, and speed).
