CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Blast Motion and The Futures League have partnered to track and improve elite collegiate athlete swing performance. The Blast Baseball sensor will be used during practice and in-game to collect and analyze player’s hitting metrics. This information will be made available to the athletes and coaches post-game to help give them an edge over their competition and to help the athletes build their professional portfolio.
“Being able to use the same technology as major leaguers to analyze their swing is going to be a huge benefit for our players," said The Futures League commissioner Chris Hall. “It’s really going to give our league a step-up on other summer collegiate leagues with college coaches seeing our guys improving their game throughout the summer.”
