Sensor motion capture company Blast Motion scored a deal with Major League Baseball. Blast Motion announced today a multi-year deal that makes Blast Baseball the Official Bat Sensor Technology of Major League Baseball.

As part of this agreement, Blast Baseball technology will be available for organizational developmental use by MLB teams, featured at the 2016 SiriusXM All-Star Futures Game on July 10 (7pm ET on MLB Network and MLB.com), integrated into select television broadcasts, used by youth athletes at the USA Baseball National Training Complex at Thomas Brooks Park in Cary, NC, and will soon be available for purchase via the official MLB shop.

“We’ve created a seamless user experience that’s portable, affordable, and easy to use,” said Roger Weingarth, Blast Motion President and COO. “We’re excited to be partnering with MLB to advance the game of baseball and bring professional-grade technology to athletes of all skillsets. It’s going to be fun watching technology enable a new generation of athletes.”

The Blast Baseball swing analysis sensor, Power Sensor, and mobile apps have been specially designed to help players of all ages and skillsets understand the mechanics of their swings and learn how to hit with more power.

The water proof sensor and bat attachment slips over the knob of any baseball or softball bat and have been designed to capture highly accurate swing metrics and analyze performance. By leveraging Blast Motion’s patented Smart Video Capture technology with a user’s smartphone camera, the Blast Baseball app intelligently combines and syncs swing metrics with video to create a powerful new swing analysis tool.

The app automatically detects a player’s swing and clips the video to create a series of video highlights. No user editing or playback intervention is required to experience this groundbreaking functionality.

The Blast pro team apps have been specially designed for use by professional teams and coaches to provide a 360-degree game improvement solution, optimized for both major and minor league practice sessions and equipment management.

The Blast Baseball sensor retails for $149.99.
