Matt’s Position With Caught Stealing
As the co-developer of the Caught Stealing technology, my focus has been on the ground doing research and development working with various MLB teams, including the Arizona Diamondbacks, San Diego Padres, Anaheim angels and the Colorado Rockies. The technology is geared towards collecting specific data metrics (pop time, release-time, velocity in mph, and throw distance all accessible on private profiles, leaderboards in an effort to connect catchers with coaches and scouts.
