Today the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association (THSBCA) and Blast Motion, the leader in swing analysis, player development, and remote coaching, announced a multi-year partnership to make Blast the Official Swing Analyzer of THSBCA. Blast and THSBCA have a common goal of bringing the baseball community and players together to help young athletes swing with a purpose, compete, and have fun. THSBCA coaches will have the ability to stay connected with their players, while allowing players to continue their development at home. Players will also have the opportunity to participate in virtual developmental hitting competitions, powered by Blast, that will let them compete with their peers, showcase their skills, and improve as hitters.
“The THSBCA has always worked to further the knowledge and awareness of baseball, at all levels, and we see Blast as providing players with an incredible tool to help them understand and improve their swing,” said Rex Sanders, Executive Director at THSBCA. “When coaches use Blast with their teams, we’re enabling them to have access to the same swing analysis information used by MLB teams. They also get a chance to work with players while they are away from the field, allowing them to help hold players accountable for their own individual training. This is an opportunity for both coaches and players to benefit, and it directly helps us advance our mission for the baseball community.”
The Blast solution is designed to help coaches evaluate and improve a player’s swing through automatic swing quality assessments, video analysis and comparisons, 3D swing tracer visualizations, and personalized performance reports.
“We are thrilled to partner alongside the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association,” said Jeff Fallis, VP, Sales, at Blast Motion. “Blast technology helps aspiring athletes better understand their swing and shorten the feedback loop, both in practice and in-game. Athletes that want to take their game to the next level need continual, unbiased feedback on their performance. We look forward to bringing these benefits to coaches and players across the state of Texas, while working with THSBCA on our shared mission to grow the game.”
