SwingTracker Becomes Official Batting Analytics Tool For Triple Crown Sports

FORT COLLINS/PITTSBURGH– Triple Crown Sports, the cutting-edge leader in youth sports industry, and sports technology pioneer Diamond Kinetics announced today an exclusive partnership that will make Diamond Kinetics’ SwingTracker™ sensor-based swing analysis system the Official Batting Analytics Tool for Triple Crown Baseball.

Triple Crown Sports will utilize the comprehensive swing statistics provided by SwingTracker at all its Testing and Measurement events in baseball. SwingTracker will allow players to measure their swing performance against their peers through quantitative analysis and mechanics diagnostics specifically designed for performance improvement.

Measuring each swing in 15 different ways, SwingTracker is the most comprehensive swing measurement tool available in baseball and softball today, and the only device of its kind to allow users to sync video of swings with key data points throughout the swing.

Triple Crown Sports will display four core SwingTracker metrics to all players who test:

1. Max Barrel Speed

2. Distance of Barrel in the Zone

3. Trigger to Impact Time

4.  Impact Momentum

“We are very excited to weave complex analytics into our new Testing and Measurement events to help players improve their performance,” said Keri King, COO of Triple Crown Sports.  “In 2015, we will be offering these events at different TCS tournaments around the country, starting with the Texas Season Opener on March 7-8 in Dallas, Texas.  Players will be able to get instant results on how they stack up against athletes their age around the country.”

Diamond Kinetics CEO C.J. Handron continues, “Triple Crown Sports and the SwingTracker system bring quantified and accurate skill assessment to baseball players participating in Triple Crown Sports’ tournaments nationally. Integrating our in-depth and objective swing motion data within these events will provide players the ability to measure their performance against their peers.”

SwingTracker was recently recognized by the American Baseball Coaches Association as one of the top sports technology tools on the market, with Diamond Kinetics being awarded “Best in Show” at the ABCA Convention held in Orlando, FL.

Moreover, Diamond Kinetics was named as a finalist for 2015 Bluetooth Breakthrough Awards for the Bluetooth-powered SwingTracker sensor. The awards applaud the most innovative products and applications developed for the wireless protocol of today.
