PROGRAM 15, the Official Global Grassroots Player Identification and Development Program for New Balance Baseball, selects Blast Baseball, as the official Swing Analyzer and Data Provider for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series.
PROGRAM 15 continues to push the game of baseball and its amateur athletes into new territories through innovation by partnering with Blast Baseball as the Official Swing Analyzer and Data Provider for the New Balance Future Stars Series.
Blast Baseball is the #1 swing analyzer used by the majority of the MLB teams and colleges, including the last three teams to win the World Series. Blast swing insights have become the benchmark for evaluating and improving a player’s swing with industry-leading accuracy and consistency validated by The Center for Human Performance.
With the new partnership, players attending Future Stars Series Combines will have Blast Baseball’s performance metrics captured and incorporated into PROGRAM 15’s player evaluation model. Each player is provided a Full Scouting Report along with developmental feedback to assist in their long-term growth from scouts who have successfully signed Major League players. Players will be able to upload their Blast data into the PROGRAM 15 Proprietary Scouting Database to be available to college recruiting staff and pro scouts.
PROGRAM 15 Scouting Reports are just one of the reasons Future Stars Series Scouting and Evaluation events have built a reputation as the most comprehensive amateur baseball player identification and development experiences available. Backed by decades of Pro Baseball experience, PROGRAM 15’s National Staff of former Major League and professional players, scouts, and coaches provide in-depth and credible evaluations that are trusted by Major League scouts and college coaches across the country.
PROGRAM 15 Founder, CEO and President of Baseball Operations for The New Balance Baseball Future Stars Series, Jeremy Booth says, “When we began, we started with Blast. We were on board then. With the advancements they’ve made in their technology and analysis, their integrity to deliver and commitment to follow through, and their focus on being part of the series as a priority, this was an easy decision. With their working relationships with the NCAA programs and our advisory board clubs, the information transfer within the ecosystem to help players is now seamless.”
Mike Woods, Vice President, Business Development and Strategic Partnerships, Blast Motion said, “ We’re excited to be working with the Program 15, Future Star Series Combines. Aspiring athletes that want to take their game to the next level desire feedback on their performance from events. Blast Motion’s technology, through this partnership, will allow for immediate actionable information on the athlete’s swing; providing actionable feedback on what they need to do to improve.”
