Softbank Hawks plan to go analyaze pitch patterns at fall camp

by on Oct.31, 2010 @ 7:22 pm, under NPB

The Softbank Hawks are apparently planning on going over pitch patterns with their pitchers during fall camp this year.  That includes pitchers like Toshiya Sugiuchi, Tsuyoshi Wada, Tadashi Settsu, and Takahiro Mahara.

The Hawks had a respectable 3.89 team ERA (good for second in the league) and held opponents to just 99 homers (only club in the NPB that gave less than 100 homers).  However, they also struggled somewhat against the Seibu Lions (4.76), Nippon Ham Fighters (4.73) and Orix Buffaloes (4.44).
