CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Prep Baseball Report and Blast Motion, the leader in swing analysis, player development and improvement, announced a partnership today that makes Blast the Official Swing Analysis Technology of Prep Baseball Report.
The partnership brings Blast’s technology to participants in PBR events from coast to coast, with the first integration occurring at the Super 60 showcase in Chicago on Feb. 2.

“Blast Motion is the industry leader in swing analysis,” Prep Baseball Report President Sean Duncan said. “Their technology and player deliverable is best in class and has been adopted at the highest levels of baseball. The data collected at our events will be a great benefit for our scouting staff. Equally as important, the feedback and post-event analysis for the players will help them continue to improve.”

This report provides professional-level swing analytics designed to help players improve their hitting performance and get recruited.
Prep Baseball Report will use Blast data to enhance PBR Player Profiles and will create swing metric leaderboards for different levels of play, so participants can measure their performance and know how they compare with their peers.

Blast will offer solutions tailored to PBR players, as well as special pricing on Blast products and services.
