SmartKage Completes Twentieth Installation

Company Reaches Halfway Point of First Phase Launch With Prospect Sports of Farmingdale, New York

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 7, 2015) - SmartSports continues on its torrid pace to complete the first 40 SmartKage® units, of a scheduled national rollout of 160 facilities. The Company today announced it has completed the installation of Prospect Sports in Farmingdale, Long Island, New York. The 25-thousand square foot facility, which features an instruction roster of current and former minor/major league players, marks the twentieth nationwide location.

"Obviously, with improved weather conditions and the height of baseball season upon us, we are being as aggressive as possible in our efforts to complete our first phase launch," said Company co-founder and Chief Operating Officer Larry Scannell. "While we have units from coast-to-coast, there are still a significant number of markets which have been contacted that will complete the first phase."

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.

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