DiamondCLUB Web App Receives Stunning Visual Updates

DiamondCLUB

PITTSBURGH – Diamond Kinetics’ web-based DiamondCLUB app has received project-wide visual style changes that complement and partner perfectly with the recently updated SwingTracker mobile app.

Dispelling The Mystery of Pitch Speed

PITTSBURGH – In the midst of our Science of Baseball conversation with Dr. Alan Nathan during the Home Run Derby, a simple but astute question was posed.

“How much does pitch speed effect the distance a ball travels?”

The thought behind the question being, “If MLB players are hitting the ball 440 feet during the Home Run Derby with grooved batting practice pitches going roughly 70 mph or so, how far could they hit the ball if they had a grooved 90 mph pitch?”

Dr. Nathan responded with the Tweet you see at the top of this post.
