The time from the cocking point in the delivery until release of the ball.

On-field Impact:

This is the second phase of the pitch and can tip a pitch if there is different time for different pitch types. It also contributes to total Time to Plate when trying to hold runners on base.

Real Life Example:

If a player tries to throw a change-up by slowing down his arm (instead of with the grip), this can be detected by the batter.
