Re: Some NL Central players show up in a Plate Discipline article
From the article
If you've been reading the recent Daily Graphing columns, you'll notice that I've been talking about some not so common stats such as, the percent a player swings at pitches outside the strike zone and actual contact rate. These oddball stats are derived from Baseball Info Solution's "pitch data" which contains the location and result of each and every pitch, among other things. I've decided it's probably a good idea to go over a bunch of these stats and examine why I think they're meaningful.
Does anyone know if those stats are readily available online anywhere? Appelman scratches the surface, but anyone with this data could really do some outstanding studies based on pitch location and the percentage of swings at balls/strikes.
