ORLANDO, Fla., March 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FlightScope, a world leader in sports technology, is now providing its unmatched training technology to nearly 250 collegiate teams competing in more than 1,100 games at this year’s RussMatt Baseball Central Florida Invitational. Through this partnership, FlightScope is equipping every tournament field with its Strike radar, so competing teams can capture and analyze data to improve this season.
“As FlightScope continues to tap deeper into the baseball industry, we’re thrilled to provide our unrivalled radar tracking to the collegiate teams competing at the RussMatt Baseball Invitational,” said FlightScope CEO Henri Johnson. “With FlightScope’s Strike, tournament players can view detailed hit and pitch analysis in the form of 3D trajectories, data tables and strike zone mapping – a comprehensive breakdown of statistics that has never been offered in the baseball world before.”
FlightScope Strike is the first multi-frequency 3D tracking radar for baseball, employing direct distance measurement to provide accurate positions, speeds, and angles of pitch and hit ball trajectories. The Strike measures vertical and horizontal angles, ball speeds and accurate distance measurements to the ball at any point, allowing both players and coaches a detailed performance analysis. With a built-in camera for video capturing, dynamic zone mapping and other data measurements, the Strike players improve using instant feedback on their game.
“With collegiate players – stemming from NCAA D I, II, III, NAIA and JUCO divisions – all attending this year’s tournament, we’re excited that such a large group of athletes will leave with FlightScope analytics,” said Rob Sitz, president of RussMatt Baseball. “The Strike is a game changer when it comes to the future of baseball coaching and player development, and we’re confident that FlightScope’s technology will give players a great start to this season.”
Looking ahead, FlightScope’s data will also be available through BaseballCloud, a new website that consolidates analytics from players all over the country in one centralized location, officially launching June 1. BaseballCloud’s vision is to provide amateurs with the same developmental benefits that professional players enjoy from data analysis. Additionally, the network allows players to compare their results with other baseball players at every amateur and professional level. For teams using FlightScope Strike, BaseballCloud grants the team’s manager private data access to guide player development and team management.
