Developer's Description

At Big Time Coach, we use our apps for each-and-every Game, Practice, Tryout, and Draft that we participate in. Our apps are continually used and refined to put the tools we've come to rely on in your hands.Big Time Coach Pitch Counter is designed to track pitches and innings for players of all ages. As arm injuries increase among youth pitchers, Big Time Coach has developed an application that will help coaches and parents manage the days of rest needed. Little League International days rest rules have been incorporated into the app to help coaches become more knowledgeable about the game requirements. Users may also create custom days rest for tournament play, other youth league rules and the ability to utilize the most current research to best ensure the safety of all youth pitchers. Beyond managing days rest you have the ability to track the number of innings and pitches thrown by player. An often-overlooked aspect of tracking pitches is the number of pitches thrown during a practice or Bull Pen session. These pitches thrown in the practice setting can play a critical role in adding to the risk of arm injuries to pitchers. Big Time Coach Pitch Counter addresses this gap, and provides new insight into the process of pitching, tracking and rest. Features include: Innovative Pitch Counter --- keeps track of balls, strikes, total, pitches, total outs and strike percentage. Current batters count, outs, and runners on base are included to help the coach know the count and assist with pitch selection decisions. Seeded Days Rest --- thresholds based on Little League International rules covers ages 7 through 18, and can be applied to the Pitch Counter to automatically track the required days of rest. Custom Days Rest Creation --- ability to set custom days rest rules to meet the needs of tournament play, league rules, rehabilitation and to keep current on the latest medical research. Player Tracking --- setup players to track pitches thrown in games, bull pens, or any other side session. Simple Bull Pen Counter --- track balls, strikes, total pitches and strike percentage to aid coaches in getting players ready for game situations.

Game Summary View --- provides a list of all pitchers in a game, total pitches, number of innings and current days rest requirement. Tapping a row provides full detail for the pitchers outing.

What's new in version 1.7.1

-- Updates & Bug Fixes --- Changed game pitch counters to save information more often. In rare cases a user could loose pitch count information when navigating away from a pitch counter. We've addressed this by saving the information more often.- Changed player pitching graphs so that the default view coincides with the choice of Game or Bull Pen pitch count viewing. Total Pitches still displays game information by default.- Updated player pitch information summary to make it simpler to select Bull Ben, Game, or Total pitch views. Also added a 'guard' on the graph view to ensure there are games or bull pens to graph before navigating to the graph view.- Added "Team Filter" for games: now you can select any team (home or visitor) from a list, and have the games view filtered by teams that match the selected name.- Added "Pitching Summary" view for pitch counters: once people know you are counting pitches, parents, coaches, and others come up and ask "what was the pitch count for player X". Before adding the new view you needed to navigate back to the game summary to view the pitches, and then re-set the situation when you returned to the pitch counter. We've added a small button at the bottom of the pitch counter, that when pressed displays the summary information for all pitchers on the same team as the pitcher. You won't loose your place or your current situation when providing coaches and fans pitching information for other players.- Updated Pitch Smart information to links. Pitch Smart continues to improve their site, and this impacts our ability to pull the information directly into Pitch Counter. We've changed the method for access to Pitch Smart so that the Safari browser is launched to the Pitch Smart website page.- Fixed a bug in the "Flip" pitch counter where outs were not being recorded correctly for the home team.- Under-the-hood changes to comply with new iOS protocols and definitions.- Minor bug fixes and performance updates.
