Yesterday I looked at some Pitch F/X from the AFL for the Reds pitchers. Today I wanted to look at the hitters a little bit. I wanted to keep it simple, so I just wanted to look at the plate discipline of the hitters. I am just going to plot the pitches that the players have swung at versus the strikezone and the pitches that they have taken versus the strikezone.

First lets look at the pitches that the hitters have looked at.

AFL Pitches Taken

Lets note that there is probably 30% of the data missing for each player as only two of the parks in the league are equipped for PFX data.

Here is the chart of the pitches each player has swung at.

AFL Swings

Just looking at this chart we can see that Alonso has swung at 6 pitches that were clearly out of the zone, Cozart has swung at 8 pitches clearly out of the zone and Heisey has swung at 15 pitches clearly out of the zone. Heisey seems to like the high pitches, where he chased the most.
