CARLSBAD, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Blast Motion, an industry innovator focused on 360-degree athletic

swings,” said Carlos Correa, Houston Astros shortstop. “Seeing my swing
data really is the quickest way to make adjustments. The Blast
technology helps you improve your game whether you are a pro ballplayer
or a kid trying to become one.”

As a Blast Athlete, Carlos will be using the Blast Baseball 360 metrics
and video analysis to keep his swing in top shape. He will be sharing

“It’s been amazing to see someone with Carlos’ talent utilize the sensor

Blast Baseball 360 is the official bat sensor technology of Major League
Baseball®. The Blast sensor and mobile app have been
specially designed for swing analysis, helping players of all ages and
skillsets understand the mechanics of their swings and learn how they
can hit with more power and efficiency. The waterproof sensor and bat
attachment slip over the knob of any baseball or softball bat and have
been designed to capture highly accurate swing metrics. Blast Motion’s
patented Smart Video Capture™ technology uses a smartphone camera to
capture video, while the Blast Baseball 360 app intelligently analyzes,
combines, and syncs swing metrics with the video to deliver real-time,
mobile video analysis. The app automatically detects a player’s swing
and clips the video to create a series of video highlights. No user
editing or practice interruption is required to experience this
groundbreaking functionality.
