13 SmartKage Systems in the Field

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Mar 4, 2015) - SmartSports' race to have its first 40 SmartKage® units, of a scheduled national rollout of 160, is on pace as the Company today announced that 13 systems are currently up and running. Talking in baseball parlance, Company co-founder and Chief Operating Officer Larry Scannell said that 15 more units are on deck and another 12 are in the hole.

"We now have units from coast-to-coast and we are rapidly filling in the rest of the country," said Scannell, a former professional baseball player who is heading up the national rollout. "Despite incredible weather conditions we have been able to maintain our hectic installation schedule and anticipate even faster response as the weather improves which will coincide with the beginning of both professional and amateur baseball leagues."

All facilities have online bookings/testing for its patented SmartKage baseball/softball player evaluation system which now include:

  • The South Bay Refinery - Torrance, CA
  • Roundtripper Sports Academy - Westfield, IN
  • It's All in the Game - Peoria, AZ

The aforementioned are the first of 40 units scheduled for completion by mid-2015. When complete, a total of 160 SmartKage units will be available to virtually everyone in the contiguous United States. Individuals can contact the company, via the website, to find out when a facility will be coming to a specific location.

In what it calls the equivalent of a "Physical SAT™" SmartKage is the first quantitative technology system and network that measures specific athletic performance for baseball and softball players.

Each one-hour SmartKage session yields up to 75 performance metrics for baseball and softball players. The patented proprietary technologies are completely invisible to the user; there are no wires, markers or sensors on the athlete. Performance data is captured in real time and used for player development, identification, college recruiting and professional scouting.

SmartKage technology has been developed in conjunction with some of the foremost sports technologists and leading authorities in the game, including several Major League teams. Concurrently the Company has gone through a very rigorous vetting process selecting only blue-chip locations to represent the SmartKage brand.

During its developmental process SmartSports has partnered with the nation's leaders in the field of sports including Rawlings Sporting Goods, the number one Baseball brand worldwide whose 125 years of product innovation has changed the game.

SmartSports has also partnered with Sportvision which, in conjunction with Major League Baseball Advanced Media (MLBAM), has permanently installed its PITCHf/x pitch tracking system in every MLB stadium. Additionally, SmartSports works with Major League teams in each of the six divisions as well as 3,600 colleges and universities.
