TrackMan data in NPB

TrackMan data in NPB
I just learned that supposedly there is TrackMan Data for the KBO in 2015. Which is surprising since 2015 is the first year that there is TrackMan data for MLB. Do you know if there is such data for NPB? If so, is it free online anywhere?

I've heard that the Hawks had installed sensors for Pitching F/X tracking. Is that somehow related?

Unfortunately, the powers-that-be in NPB don't see the benefit of expanding the public knowledge of detailed data, and such information is going to be highly protected until others can replicate it as a commodity.

Wish I had better news to tell you.

This is a site about Pro Yakyu (Japanese Baseball), not about who the next player to go over to MLB is. It's a community of Pro Yakyu fans who have come together to share their knowledge and opinions with the world. It's a place to follow teams and individuals playing baseball in Japan (and Asia), and to learn about Japanese (and Asian) culture through baseball.

It is my sincere hope that once you learn a bit about what we're about here that you will join the community of contributors.
