'The implications of this are kinda big.'

It’s 2016 and StatCast is everyone’s favorite new toy. It’s not exactly a new toy, of course. Bits and pieces of the system were rolled out in 2014 and last year, there were plenty of chances for the data to make themselves known on game broadcasts. Baseball fans have begun to absorb a new set of numbers as they watch the game. Unlike some of the “advanced” stats that have come before StatCast, these are numbers that a lot of people had actively wondered about, but had very little ability to measure. How fast was he running on that play? That looked like a long way to run to make that catch, but how long was it?

If a woman is ever going to make it to the top of baseball's pyramid, more girls are going to need to be welcomed at the base of it.

Softball isn’t baseball, and yet we’re told it is. We’re told from a very young age that if we want to play baseball, we have to satisfy ourselves with this different sport entirely, a sport that should have its own rich heritage and history but instead, despite the fact that it comes from a different place, is looked down on as inferior to baseball[1].

This is not a piece about Sarah Hudek. I don’t know her motivations, and I can’t blame her for taking a reported softball scholarship to a well-reputed university instead of continuing to play baseball at a community college in Louisiana. I don’t know what her thought process was, I don’t know what might have gone into this decision, but I do know that even if she had continued to play baseball, there wasn’t really anywhere for her to go after two years.

It’s hard enough to find and maintain and grow a competitive college baseball team on the anemic number of scholarships maintained and mandated by the NCAA. I can understand why a coach, especially a D1 coach, especially a D1 coach in any kind of competitive conference, would shy away from giving any part of a scholarship to a woman, and why a woman might not be able to take even the piddling amount potentially offered to attend an expensive university.

Notes from the Field: Draft Notes: April 20, 2016

Steve Givarz

Notes on Bo Bichette,

Bo Bichette,
Bo is the son of former Major Leaguer Dante Bichette, and younger brother of former Yankees first-round selection Dante Bichette Jr. Bichette has an athletic frame and a muscular lower half. While already physically fit now, he can still add muscle to his upper half. He also features some of the best raw power in this draft class, with 70 raw power, and can take a ball out to any part of the park. He hits from an open stance with his hands above his head and with a bat wiggle. A deep load coupled with a high leg kick could cause timing issues in the future as he faces more advanced secondary offerings and better velocity. While he has plus bat speed to help make up for some mistakes down the road, I don’t see him getting to anything higher than a 40 hit tool.
Defensively Bichette has above-average hands and can unleash some 60 throws from across the diamond when needed. While he has been playing SS now, he will move over to 3B as a professional. His lack of side-to-side range, plus as Bichette matures and gets more muscular, he won’t be able to man the position well. Bichette is an average runner at present and will only slow down as he matures and gets older. Nonetheless, Bichette should still profile as an above-average defender at 3B due to his plus arm and quick hands.
All in all Bichette, who is committed to Arizona State, could hear his name called as early as round 2, but likely won’t get past round 4 in this upcoming draft. While there are certainly questions about his hit utility and defensive home, this is still one of the premium bats of this
