Command F/X To Measure Pitching Accuracy

New system tries to measure pitchers command

      SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Figuring out which pitchers have the best
control has been relatively easy. Look at the number of strikes and
balls each one throws.
      Command is a more elusive, yet equally important, measurement.
That's because hitting the catcher's target can often be the
difference between an effective waste pitch just outside the strike
zone and a fastball that catches too much of the plate and becomes
a home run.
      Teams will now have access to information on how close a pitcher
comes to hitting his target on each pitch. The system is known as
Command F/X. And the company behind it is the same one that put
together the yellow first-down marker in the football, the glowing
puck in hockey and the Pitch F/X in baseball.
