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 as well as SABR (Society for American Baseball Research) best known for its development of "Sabrrmetrics" and advanced baseball statistical analytics.

Additionally, SmartSports works with Major League teams in each of the six divisions as well as 3,600 colleges and universities.
