How Exactly They Run ‘Em Down

Here’s a very enjoyable article from SI.com’s Cliff Corcoran about MLB Advanced Media’s new motion tracking system called “Statcast” which shows how far fielders go, at what speed, on what kind of jump and the efficiency of the route they take when casing down fly balls.  He provides video of two of the better catches made so far this season, one by the Dodgers’ Yasiel Puig and the other by the Pirates Andrew McCutchen.  It’s well worth reading the article and watching the embedded videos.
