The iPad Pro is stepping up to the plate.
Apple has struck a multiyear partnership with Major League Baseball to equip every coach in the league with a 12.9-inch iPad Pro. According to The Wall Street Journal, MLB coaches are expected to use the iPad Pros to browse through performance stats from various seasons, calculate how a hitter will do against a certain pitcher, see “spray charts” of where the hit ball is most likely to go, and pull up videos from previous games.
“I started in this game 25 years ago, and the single biggest change has been the emergence and predominance of analytics,” MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred told the WSJ. “It affects the way we judge players, make decisions on the field, and the way fans consume the game.”
