FieldVision gives fans 3D look at MLB playoffs

November 3rd, 2021

Buckle up for a view of the diamond that you’ve never seen before.

MLB’s Statcast technology has already changed the game in how it’s given fans a whole new set of data they can use to understand baseball. Now, MLB FieldVision Beta is joining the mix.

The new MLB Statcast system uses 12 high-definition cameras strategically positioned around the ballpark to track the movements of every player on the field, capturing 18 points on each player’s body. MLB FieldVision Beta takes this limb tracking data and transforms it into a 3D experience that enables fans to watch plays unfold from any position on the field. (To access plays, users must log in to their account, or register if they don't have one already).

Fans have relied solely on the angles they see on a television broadcast to take in all the different plays in a ballgame -- until now. Here are some exciting plays from the 2021 MLB postseason brought to life by FieldVision.
