New Pitch Blocking Research

by Mike Fast

This morning the Hardball Times published a fabulous piece of research by Bojan Koprivica on catchers blocking pitches.

Bojan's work builds on the knowledge established by previous research on the topic by Dan Turkenkopf and Dave Allen. There is a lot of meat to chew on Bojan's article, but I highly recommend taking the time to digest it if catcher fielding is a topic that interests you.
