Bountifu, Utah United States – Just Bat Reviews today announced the success of their new partnership with Rapsodo, a business that provides players with powerful data on bat performance to improve their game with instant statistics for smart analytics and measurable progress.
The partnership, which began in November of 2017, has enabled the baseball bat review site to deliver even more in-depth reviews by including quantitative ball flight information to readers seeking to find out more about specific models of baseball bats prior to purchase.
“This is the first time in the history of baseball that third-party quantitative data on bat performance has been available to the public, said Brian Duryea, owner of Just Bat Reviews. “We feel that this is a giant leap forward in consumer information, and it is our intention to put this data at the fingertips of every parent and player being asked to spend hundreds of dollars on performance equipment.”
Just Bat Reviews uses Rapsodo to measure a variety of metrics with advanced analytical tools, including the exit velocity, exit launch angle, exit direction, spin rate, spin axis, and even 3D ball flight with tested bats to deliver a comprehensive, honest review of a bat's true performance with scientific data.
The powerful equipment is either mounted on a tripod, 7 feet behind the home plate, or placed inside a “tank” 14 feet in front of the hitter. It also provides video playback for extra insight into the physical mechanics behind hitting a ball. This enables players and their coaches to make on-the-spot adjustments to play to improve their overall game.
For Just Bat Review, this marks a huge step forward as the internet’s leading place for in-depth, unbiased baseball bat reviews. Just Bat Reviews was already the leading voice in independent bat reviews and the addition of Rapsodo data makes it only that much more useful to players, coaches and parents.
Thanks to the new collaboration with Just Bat Reviews, anyone can gain access to the powerful, quantitative data on bat performance that Rapsodo delivers simply by visiting the site and selecting the bat model that they wish to learn more about. The website reviews a variety of bats, including slow pitch, fast pitch, wood, big barrel, youth, and BBCOR bats, all categorized for ease of browsing.
Due to the recent nature of this partnership, not all bats have been reviewed using Rapsodo, but this will change in the future as more reviews are added as well as altered to reflect this new data.
Rapsodo released its baseball solution in 2016, giving baseball players of all skill levels a powerful tool to measure their performance and the best bat for their style of play. It has received widespread acclaim from professional players.
“Raspodo pitching has been instrumental in the development of our elite pitchers,” said Randy Sullivan, a baseball coach at the Florida Baseball Ranch. “We’re taking science to the other side of the ball. The information our hitters gain about exit velocity, launch angle, and spin creates a fertile environment for self-organized swings that do damage!”
