CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cape Cod Baseball League (CCBL) has partnered with Blast Motion to deliver metrics powered player development and scouting analysis. The Blast Baseball sensor is approved for use in-game during the season and at the Cape League All-Star Game to capture a player’s swing metrics. The Blast metrics give players a professional-level view of their swing performance and improve their scouting opportunities. This information will be made available to the players, coaches, and scouts attending CCBL games.
“With as many as one in 6 MLB players having played in the Cape Cod Baseball League prior to their professional careers, we believe that providing our athletes with access to Blast data will not only help them advance their career, it will undoubtedly improve their hitting skill set,” said Paul Galop, Commissioner, Cape Cod Baseball League. “The Blast sensor provides professional-level metrics accuracy and it’s easy to use, which is an important factor for streamlining in-game swing data given our large staff of volunteers.”
Blast Baseball is also the Official Bat Sensor Technology of Major League Baseball®. The Blast sensor and mobile app will provide Cape Cod Baseball League with the industry’s most accurate swing data as proven by the independent Center for Human Performance study. The Blast app has been specially designed to combine video with metrics to enhance swing analysis, allowing coaches to easily replay and review a player’s swings mechanics.
“We’re extremely excited to partner with such a well-respected league that continues to raise the standards for collegiate summer baseball,” said Justin Goltz, Baseball / Softball Channel Manager, Blast Motion. “Through player development and scouting, we expect our technology will bring further innovation to The Cape’s rich tradition of helping their players play professionally.”
