What makes Applied Vision Softball Pitch Recognition App different?

The Applied Vision Softball app utilizes actual video footage from inside the batter's box on each side of the plate to capture the most realistic hitter's perspective.

With the strike-zone awareness box placed on the footage, the user can reference the box to identify pitch-types, and balls & strikes while training in the app.

Lastly, we offer a full library of pitch-type specific pitch recognition training drills. Are you struggling with recognizing the changeup? You can use the changeup pitch recognition Occlusion Training sequence drill, which is a pitch recognition training philosophy used by professional organizations since the 1980s.

How often should I train my pitch recognition?

There are two main problems that AVS attempts to solve.

1. Help hitters to develop pitch recognition skills to slow the game down while developing a better Hitter I.Q.™.

2. Help hitters supplement their development if they're not getting enough at-bats/playing time during the game.

How often you should be training your pitch recognition depends on where you are at in your developmental process as well as how much playing time you're getting.

In either case, we've seen great results with hitters who allocate five minutes a day to reinforce proper pitch recognition habits.

You spend time in the batting cage to refine your swing. You spend time in the weight room to build explosive power and strength, and you spend time in the AVS Recognition App to develop superior pitch recognition skills.

How long does it take to see results?

As mentioned previously, it depends on where the hitters are at in their developmental process. Typically, we see same-day results for hitters who train with the Soft to Hard Focus pitch recognition drills just before a game.

Do you offer team pricing or discounts?

Can you practice before games?

Yes, and it's highly recommended! Using the AVS Pitch Recognition App is a great way to reinforce proper visual movements that a hitter can implement into their next at-bat. Especially the soft to hard focus drills as well as the strike-zone awareness drills.

At what age should players start using this pitch recognition app?

At what age should players start using this pitch recognition app?

As a general rule of thumb, we recommend introducing pitch recognition training as soon as hitters begin facing live pitching off of a mound. The sooner a hitter can understand plate and zone awareness, the sooner a hitter will develop pitch type and location detection as well as their overall Hitter I.Q.™.
