Pin point pitching preview

It looks like we got a preview of the new pitching mechanic. I posted a gif to imgur if you want to see it [link](MLB The Show 21 Pin Point pitching meter https://imgur.com/gallery/HNlRZGD)

It looks interesting. I wonder if it's a similar mechanic to what 2k baseball used to have?

I was trying to disect it because it looks similar. There seems to be two moving parts I can see. The first is the pattern inside the big circle. The second is a white ball on the outer circle that travels around to a dark circle.

My best guess is the user mimicks that pattern with the stick and then releases when the white circle meets the dark circle on the outer ring. So you have two inputs to be judged, the accuracy of the pattern and the timing of your release.

Yeah, if it's two moving parts, one timing and the other replicating the pattern, that'll be ridiculously hard. They'll be like, see you missed your input so it goes wherever. Ha ha

Doesn't give me enough yet to speculate.
