PITTSBURGH – The game has changed immensely since the days of Willie Stargell, Manny Sanguillen and Dave Parker in Three Rivers Stadium, and one more example comes from Pirates owner Bob Nutting: As his Pirates continue trying to chase down the St. Louis Cardinals, he’s swinging away on a side project that he hopes will aid both a local Pittsburgh company and thousands of youth baseball players.

The company is Diamond Kinetics, whose patented “SwingTracker” allows hitters to study their bat speed and swing trajectory and, theoretically, make improvements in real time. Nutting is one of the eager investors.
