I really don’t get the question since you yourself just admitted to keeping a spray chart yourself for your own team you score with and that’s at the HS level… [/quote]
Yes, I do spray charts for our team, but that’s wildly different than having them for opponents.
You seem to be misunderstanding the question. The article said to pay attention during BP, but no HS team I’ve ever seen takes BP on the field before a game. So, unless one goes to a team practice, or wants to rely on maybe one or two BIPs in a scouted game, where would one find their spray charts?
That is true, and it may be helpful for teams which they play multiple times during a season. But say you’re gonna play team XYZ from a different state, where you have never seen any of the players before. Where do the spray charts come from?
The sample size to me hasn’t got anything to do with it because I think its much more “telling” to have spray charts for the pitchers than the hitters. Here’s an example of why our guys have done for the 1st 4 games this year. Other than seeing the one hitter pull the ball pretty well, what do they say about the hitters? But for sure something can easily be seen for the pitchers.
