Just in time for the holidays, Blaze Jordan has teamed up with WIN Reality and Diamond Kinetics, baseball’s most powerful team, to help players perfect their hitting through virtual-reality training
Austin, TEXAS, November 19, 2021 – With another season of baseball behind us, and as we look to 2022, players are gearing up for next year. As sports enthusiasts know, ‘champions are made in the offseason’ which is exactly why future Boston Red Sox star, Blaze Jordan, has partnered with WIN Reality and Diamond Kinetics. Through their exciting virtual reality training programs that are in use by players at every level of the game from little league all the way to the majors, hitters can see unlimited game speed pitches, take live at-bats, and with Diamond Kinetics’ SwingTracker, receive valuable information on their swing mechanics.
The power hitting Jordan uses WIN Reality to improve his performance at the plate. According to Jordan: “WIN Reality has helped me unlock performance I didn’t know I had by training my eyes, working on my timing, and seeing the flight of the ball, pitch after pitch. The offseason is an important time to identify areas for improvement and then tackle them – one pitch at a time.”
By combining WIN Reality’s VR training technology, and Diamond Kinetics’ swing metrics, players like Jordan are able to train anytime from anywhere in the world, facilitating life-like practices and a better understanding of their swing.
“Advanced swing technology is a relatively new tool that has been only accessible to players at the professional level. Our partnership with Diamond Kinetics allows WIN Reality users to experience in-game situations at the plate, then study feedback provided from DK’s swing analysis,” said Chris O’Dowd, Co-Founder and CEO of WIN Reality. “These tools dramatically improve batting and coupling our VR software with swing tracking data is a perfect match to help aspiring players at all levels.”
Diamond Kinetics SwingTracker’s cutting-edge technology brings science-based motion analytics to every user. With easy-to-understand metrics for every swing, hitters will understand everything about their swing and their outcomes.
“We believe this is the most innovative and complete swing training solution on the market today. Hitters face real pitchers in WIN Reality’s VR world, enabling them to work on different scenarios and pitch types while visualizing ball flight and outcomes,” said CJ Handron, CEO of Diamond Kinetics. “This powerful solution transcends VR and the real world because the bundle bought on WINReality.com includes a SwingTracker bat sensor that players can attach during batting practice in the cage or even in a live game, extending their learning and development in every environment possible. There’s nothing else like it in the world.”
When hitters step out onto one of three virtual fields, they’ll be faced with real pitchers, throwing with the same velocity and movement that they’ll face when it counts. With a range of speeds from 30-to-100mph, and every kind of pitcher imaginable, there’s something for everyone from the youth levels of the sport, all the way to MVP winners already in the big leagues.
With real-time reporting on everything from strength of contact, to how accurate a hitter is identifying pitch types and locations, WIN Reality and Diamond Kinetics provide players with the insights needed to get better in the batter’s box and unlock hidden performance. Performance results include:
- Plate Discipline: Hitters who use WIN Reality for 15 minutes a day see significant increases invaluable plate discipline metrics
- WIN More: Teams that train with WIN Reality see a steep increase in their winning percentage
- Accelerated Development: Players who train with WIN Reality acquire skills seven times faster than those using traditional training methods and can practice on thousands of pitchers, where they would normally only face a fraction of those during the regular season
See what makes the WIN Reality and Diamond Kinetics partnership the next step in sports training evolution.
