StatTrak looks like a great program to track baseball and softball stats. It allows a user to take stats during the game of different offensive and defense stats. It takes just the regular stats to the next level because for example it calculates the ERA(Earned Run Average) for a pitcher which is something a little confusing if you don't know the formula. However, we already have a program like this that our sports information team uses. StatTrak and our sports information team takes the usual batting stats, pitching stats, and defensive stats. I am looking into a program that will take stats that most non-baseball players don't know about. Some of those things are the pitchers time to home plate, what timing they use to pick-off, and how they deliver.
