* "What I have said is we have study’s as well as basic math we use everyday in bat design that show the faster the pitch speed the faster the exit speed."
* "My comment was based on all three major groups that have looked at this, none of them will make a blanket statement that just moving back is safer. There is no proof because of many variables."
* "The one thing that has been said by all three groups - if you raise the pitch height to allow longer ball travel that would equal greater reaction time."
Coop never states that the studies claim moving the mound back will result in less reaction time, he asserts that labs are not willing to make a blanket statement on the topic given variables that are in play. This makes sense, a baseball mound is 60 feet 6 inches (over 10 feet further back) but pitchers do not have time to move back due to pitch speed and forward momentum generated in their mechanics.
Interestingly, this echoes the point which I was attempting to impart on you in your "study" is that there are many factors to take into consideration. Yes if you were to throw the same speed pitch to be struck by a ball with the same speed swing from a further distance you would have an increased reaction time. However, without raising the ceiling throwing the same speed pitch from further on the same arch would result in pitches landing short. Thus, the pitch speed must be increased. In order to do so, more forward momentum must be generated. More momentum in one direction makes it more difficult to move in an opposite one.
I attempted to caution you during some of our previous debates, and yet here we are again with you misquoting people and taking positions claiming supporting facts that are not actually facts. You have attempted to take a minimal linear approach in your study and apply it to a situation with a myriad of variables which you fail to account for. To make matters worse, not only does your "study" fail to produce any factual results, it does not even entail any verified facts as to the parameters (no pitch speed, no pitch distance, no bat speed, no ball exit speed). Despite all this, you then try to claim conspiracy by the heads of a recreational sports association because they will not agree with your unfounded results.
You are not actually factually debating anything because you have presented zero facts, you're just throwing in random unsubstantiated assertions and then deflecting. As far as theoretically debating, you are doing substandard at that as well because your theory fails to take into account all potential variables and when others willing to debate on the subject attempt to inform you of this to further discussion you again resort to name calling and conspiracy theories.
