College Baseball Profiles Livingston
Click on the U for Sample D1 Profile.
Our College Baseball Profiles provide objective information, data and proprietary statistics about a college or university and their baseball program. The report formats will be slightly different depending on the division level of the particular program. Included in each profile is up-to-date contact information, conference results, travel schedule, player demographics (to see where a program is drawing student-athletes), team expenses and many other useful tools.
The team profile shows the composition of the team by position and year. If we have access to or are provided recruit information that is included. Taking this information to the next level we break out the roster to identify Primary Players and show thePrimary Player Ratio (PPR™).
Example: An athlete whose primary position is short-stop and that is where he wants to play in college will have a better chance at a school that has a senior or junior as a primary player in that spot rather than a freshman and sophomore.
Unique Solution: College Baseball Profiles has developed Primary Player Ratios™ on the team and all positions so a player can see how many on the roster are in that position as well as who the primary players were. This is determined by class year. Careful review of the statistics from the previous season uncovers this data.
We apply that same process to the starting pitchers and all pitchers and show the corresponding Primary Starting Pitcher Ratio (PSPR™) and Primary Appearance Pitcher Ratio (PAPR™).
Example: An athlete is a left-handed pitcher and primarily a reliever and/or closer. He desires a program that utilizes the depth of their pitching staff on a regular basis as this will mean more playing time.
Unique Solution: College Baseball Profiles developed the Primary Starting Pitcher Ratio™ and The Primary Pitcher Appearance Ratio™ to show how much a team uses their starting pitchers and bullpen. The higher the ratio, the more the coach uses all the pitchers on a regular basis which means more playing time.
We also calculate the Freshman Persistency Ratio (FPR™) which shows the percentage of current seniors that were on the roster as true freshman. We also show the change in this number from the previous year. This can be an indication of players that are drafted. transfer (in or out), drop out of the program or are cut.
We include the Conference RPI (CRPI™) which is the average of the 2016 (for 2017 Profiles) final RPI for all teams in the respective conference for that teams’ Profile. Added in 2016 is the Schedule RPI (SRPI™) which for 2017 will use the average of the final 2016 RPI’s for all games on the teams 2017 schedule. This can be compared to the teams RPI and CRPI™ to get a feel for their level of competition in 2017.
The purpose of the profile is to provide the prospective Student-Athlete with objective information to evaluate where he may fit as a potential player on the team both short-term and long-term. Using this information can help to prioritize the search process to focus on where the best fits would be from a baseball point of view.
The D1 Profile has the most information which include Academic Progress Rates and RPI Rankings. D1 Schools in general seem to be more forthcoming with the information about their program they will publish and put in press releases. A link to a Sample D1 Profile is on this page.
D2 Schools do not have Academic Progress Rate but they do have a study from 2002 to 2005 completed in 2011/12 that shows the Academic Success Rate.
D3 Schools are going to have what we call more “fluidity” than the other Divisions. What we tend to see is more playing time as reflected in higher Primary Player Ratios as a group. The stability of the rosters are not as strong as the other Divisions which leads to more walk-on opportunities and more transfers than the other divisions. There are no Athletic Scholarships for D3 Sports, however there is a lot of other financial assistance available.
We consistently use input from users and college coaches to improve our profiles.
The concept is great and I love the information you guys are providing."
