(Carlsbad, Calif., – April 7, 2021) – Today, Blast Motion, the leader in swing analysis, player development and improvement, announced a partnership with The Playrs Showcase Series. The Playrs Showcase is an emerging series of premier / elite instructional events for baseball and softball youth around the country.
The Blast solution allows athletes to become the best version of themselves by intelligently combining the bio-mechanics of movement with sensor data, video capture technology, and cloud-based software services.

Additionally, players will receive an overall improvement plan with special offers related to skill development, nutrition, wellness, content for recruiting and media exposure throughout the year.
