Baseball Simulator

Players pitch to intimidating batters in a simulated game environment.  Strikeout and brush back the batters...but make sure they don't take you deep!  A built in speed gun tells the players how fast they are pitching.

True Pitching Simulation
The baseball simulator player/user is the pitcher in a true pitching simulation. That is, they pitch against "live", computer-generated hitters with a live catcher and umpire. The object of the session is to strike-out as many hitters as possible during the session. A strikeout is the only type of "out" that the pitcher can achieve during the session (i.e. there are no ground-outs or fly-outs).

Real-Size and Properly Located Baseball Simulator Strike Zone
The baseball simulator projected image size of the strike zone and its location on the screen are real. That is, it is "knees to letters" in height and has the proper plate width.

Realistic Hitter, Catcher and Umpire Reactions
Using a unique combination of video and animation processes, the baseball simulator hitter reacts with unique movements just as a real hitter would. The hitter can hit the pitch, take it, swing and miss, or move out of the way on a brush-back.  As well, the catcher can offer the pitcher advice, complain to the umpire, etc. The umpire will call balls and strikes, but also warn and potentially throw the pitcher out of the game on brush-backs and bean balls. 

Realistic Batter Behavior
Based on the skill level of the player/user (pitcher) and the batter selected, the hitter will hit the player/user's pitches accordingly (e.g. missing high-velocity pitches, hitting pitches over the middle of the plate, etc).

Baseball Simulator Data Reporting and Analysis
During the player/user session, the system's scoreboard displays the following data:
-Velocity of each pitch
-The number of strikeouts (outs)
-The count on the current batter (balls, strikes)
-The score (runs scored against)
-The number of men on base
After the baseball simulation session, a report summary is displayed that includes:
-The number of pitches thrown
-The number of pitches that were strikes
-Percentage of strikes thrown
-The number of strikeouts during the session
-The number of hits during the session
-The number of walks during the session
-The number of runs during the session
