Flight Paths for Mr Hanson's first big league start. He only threw one changeup so take that data with a grain of salt compared to the rest. Thanks to Harry Pavlidis for the template.
Here is the first base view. If you notice, Tommy Throws the fastball and slider down while throwing the curveball straight forward. Click the images for bigger versions.
He starts the slider a little more outside than the fastball and curve so it ends up crossing at about the same point as the fastball.
Here you can see the different release points and the massive hump of the curveball. It looks like he's purposely changing the release points of these pitches and it's probably tipping them. I wonder if he always does this or if it's just first start jitters.
Enjoy the pretty graphs.
