Yeah, it's an interesting thought. MLB players are scouted because the sample size is huge and easily accessible (game footage).
For little girls, how can you scout?
However, I could easily give really good tips to opposing teams on how to pitch to my girls. Mary swings at high junk -- Sally jumps out of the way at inside stuff -- Betsy can't hit a change-up to save her life and swings at all of them.
So perhaps it can be done.
Oh it can be done. Trouble with stats is where you see Mary swinging away at high junk and Sally jumping out of the way of anything inside, a parent will see bias and favoritism because little Emma had a higher BA. It’s not common sense by what a coach and anybody other than the parent can see. It’s always politics or an incompetent coaching.
