Analytics: The science behind the success.
Analytics for Hitters:
Extra Innings Analytics utilizes Blast Motion to obtain metrics from every swing that our players take. Blast Motion measures: attack angle, bat speed, blast factor, power, peak hand speed, time to contact, and many more. This is huge for our players because it allows them to track improvement each and every swing. The advantage to this software is that it can be utilized in global/online training, as well as in-person training. The software is designed to allow trainers access to players swings to track the data. This definitely changes the game and allows players to consistently be evaluated and trained by our instructors. Our instructors utilize this data to track improvements; as well as interpreting the data to help players be successful. Extra Innings Analytics understands that analytics are merely numbers without an experienced coach. With this in mind we believe that analytics and quality coaching need to be used in conjunction with one another.
Analytics for Pitchers:
Extra Innings Analytics utilizes Diamond Kinetics with our pitchers. This allows our staff to obtain metrics such as: velocity, spin rate, spin direction, timing of delivery, and much more. This is huge for our pitchers because it allows our training staff to track improvements. It also allows pitchers to understand who they are as a pitcher. For instance, a pitcher who has high spin rate will be able to throw in the upper part of the zone with success. Whereas, a pitcher with a lower spin rate is going to want to keep the ball down. This software allows instructors to monitor players globally/online, as well as in person. Extra Innings Analytics understands that analytics are merely numbers without an experienced coach. With this in mind we believe that analytics and quality coaching need to be used in conjunction with one another.
