Technology in Baseball and How It Is Changing the Game

Technology has changed the game for all sports.

Baseball is no exception. Technology has made it possible to track every movement on a baseball field and to analyze every player’s performance. It also allows coaches to see what they would not have been able to see with their naked eye and make strategic adjustments accordingly

Some ways technology is used in baseball include

  • Video analysis of the pitcher-batter matchup, which can be done before the game starts or during the game (a new technology called Trackman)

  • The use of data analytics, which can be used by both players and coaches as a way of improving performance

  • Pitching machines that are programmed with data analytics in order to help pitchers improve their accuracy

Ways Technology has Changed the Game of Baseball

Technology has also allowed for more precision in terms of tracking and recording statistics, which has made it easier for players to track their progress and improve their skills.

It has also made the game more competitive, as technology makes it easier to track more statistics and such.

Technology in Baseball is everywhere

Although we tend to think of technology in terms of AI’s and timers and such, there is also technology in the tools.

For example the technology of baseball bats has changed drastically over the years. The two main changes are the weighted bat and the metal bat.

Weighted bats were first introduced in the 1970s as a way to make hitting easier for players who couldn't swing a standard bat due to age or injury.

Metal bats became popular in the 1980s, when they were used by college teams and eventually professional leagues. The metal bat is now seen as superior because it's lighter, more durable and can generate more power than a wooden bat.

The Future of Technology in Baseball

The future of technology in baseball is set to be very different from the past.

Athletes are using more and more advanced technologies to improve their performance. For example, a pitcher can use a biomechanical analysis tool to see how his arm is moving, and then make adjustments in order to throw harder. Or, an athlete might wear a GPS tracker during practice so that they can measure the distance they ran or the speed at which they ran it.

Technology has been used in baseball for years now, but it will only continue to grow as athletes look for ways to improve their game.

What are your thoughts on technology in baseball?

Do you like the changes it makes, or does it make you nostalgic for the “good ole days?”
