Abstract: Network Baseball System is an online system that let users play baseball through the network. Two players will enjoy virtual pitching and batting through the network. In the pitcher side, the motion of the pitcher will be captured by a single camera. The moment of the pitcher releases the ball will be automatically detected in order to determine the path of the baseball. In batter side, the batter will swing the bat as the ball approaches to the homebase. The motion of the bat will be detected by the ultra-red light sensors which are put behind the screen. The system can be used not only for games, but also for online coaching. In this project, pitcher side would be concentrated. i.e. Use a web cam to capture the motion of the pitcher. The captured data is analyzed in order to determine the path of the baseball. The method of how to determine the baseball path would be designed, developed and tested. Since it is supposed to be an online system, the path should be obtained immediately in order to let the system run as real time. Therefore, delay time would be shortened by using some special capturing techniques.
