Be your Best Academy is hosting an event for pitchers on Saturday, October 1st (12:00-2:00pm) and Sunday, October 2nd (10:00am-12:00pm) at Caravel Academy in Delaware, where we will be welcoming the great people of Delivery Value System for an informational and instructional event.
What is Delivery Value System (DVS)?
The question you want to ask yourself pitchers, “Will my current pitching delivery allow me the opportunity to lengthen my career or shorten my career?” The value of knowing your DVS Score is truly understanding if you are on the right path or the wrong path. Our statistics show that as your DVS Score improves, your ability to throw more innings with less chance of injury also improves.
DVS has compiled years of research and data collection into a single quantifiable number that can give valuable insight into the health of a pitcher’s delivery. The DVS Score of a pitcher objectively evaluates the movements of a pitcher’s delivery to remove any bias towards a specific methodology or style.
The movements are broken down thru video analysis into individual components of the pitching delivery, which are examined and measured across multiple angles to calculate accurate scoring. The overall DVS Score range from 0 to 24, with 24 being the highest possible score for any pitcher.
The Delivery Value System was created in light of the current epidemic of throwing related injuries. Baseball pitching imposes significant stress on the upper extremity and can lead to injury, which can cause pain, loss of playing time, and in professional players, financial loss for the player and their team. In order to determine the amount of risk associated with any pitcher’s delivery, the Delivery Value System created the first injury prediction model. The model consists of a scoring system which looks at key components of a pitcher’s delivery and places a numerical value on the pitcher’s delivery; a DVS Score. The DVS Score is then entered into a statistical model which can further predict factors such as relative risk of injury, median time to injury, and % likelihood of an injury occurring in “x” number of innings.
The Delivery Value System aims to create an international database of DVS scores to enhance the accuracy of the model and strive towards reducing the number of throwing-related injuries on a global scale. We want DVS to be a resource for all players, coaches, teams, organizations, and medical professionals. By educating and linking in all channels within the game of baseball, we can better foster an environment of injury awareness than what currently exists.
Those who attend the event will have their throwing motion recorded and scored by DVS and will receive a special report regarding their delivery approximately one week after the event.
The system used by DVS is truly remarkable and revolutionary, and is something that we really believe in at BBA.
Normally, tickets for these events are $99, but due to our good relationship with DVS, we have been able to secure discounted ticket prices for this event for only $75!
