Baseball today relies so very heavily on analytics. For pitchers back in the day it may have just been about how hard they can throw. Today, its not only about pitch speed but pitch movement. With technology advancing to the point of devices such as Trackman and Rapsodo, we are now capable of showing how much spin a pitcher puts on pitch. This spin ultimately determines movement and movement results in swing and misses from the batter. Has your spin rate ever been evaluated? Contact us to find a facility that can measure your spin rates and build a program to make them as efficient as possible. Here's an article from Armory Pitching about Training Spin Rates.

The 6'6" Shortstop for the Pittsburgh Pirates recorded the hardest hit ball in MLB this past Wednesday against the Braves. The struck ball broke the previous record from Giancarlo Stanton of 122.2 mph. Cruz has been of a Statcast freak this season. In July he made a throw across the diamond at 97.8mph which was also the hardest thrown ball by an infielder in history. Oneil Cruz is also named after former Yankees outfielder Paul O'Neill. On his visit to Yankee Stadium this week he got to FaceTime with Paul O'Neill and received a Paul O'Neill jersey that Paul plans on signing for him in the future. Cruz plans on returning that favor with one of his own signed jerseys. See the article from ABC News below on Cruz's record breaking hot smash.
