That is really cool stuff.
I had a conversation with someone yesterday about a similar topic….
Many academies & showcase companies are now doing lots of measurements of lots of different things. Obviously velo, foot speed, bat speed are all important. Not sure how throwing a med ball or long jumping translates though, for example.
The beautiful thing about baseball is that a slow bad body guy can square up a baseball or prevent hitters from doing so. While that physical specimen with chiseled abs might throw like a girl (no offense to any girls).
Remember about 6 years ago when Nike Sparq was THE thing? I don't know any coaches that recruited a kid based off their Sparq test scores.
Measuring athleticism and spin rates and exit speeds is really cool. But I don't think you can measure baseball players like that. Will some top players measure high? Absolutely. Will some bad players measure high? I bet they will.
But I bet parents can't wait to see where their kid will land on the ranking list!
