Partnership Marks a World First as Public Gains Access to Real Performance Data

Just Bat Reviews is the #1 online destination for reviews of baseball bats and baseball bat accessories

Bountiful, Utah, United States – November 1st, 2017 – Just Bat Reviews today announced the success of their new partnership with Rapsodo, a sports analytics company that provides baseball and softball players powerful data on pitching and hitting performance to improve their game with instant statistics for smart analytics and measurable progress.

The partnership, which began in October 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 can either be mounted on a tripod, 7 feet behind the home plate, or in a protective tank 14 feet in front of the plate. It also provides video playback for extra insight into the physical mechanics behind bat performance. This enables players and their coaches to make on-the-spot adjustments to improve their overall game.

Adding more quantitative data via Rapsodo to the vast amount of qualitative data Just Bat Reviews already provides marks a huge step forward in the review of sporting equipment. Objective, measurable performance allows for less bias in reviews and rankings. It will serve as a vital piece for consumer before spending money on performance softball and baseball bats.

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 Rapsodo exit speed data.

Rapsodo released its pitching monitor in 2016, giving baseball players of all skill levels a powerful tool to measure their mound performance. Now, the addition of their hitting device gives data for both sides of the plate. Rapsodo has received widespread acclaim from professional players.

“Rapsodo 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!”
