Rapsodo Launches Game Mode Feature to Enhance Batting Practice


ST. LOUIS, Sept. 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Rapsodo, the sports data company known for helping athletes analyze real-time metrics to perfect their game, today announces its launch of Game Mode, a new, interactive feature included in their redesigned Membership program.

The system uses Rapsodo’s existing HITTING 2.0 device to transform users’ batting cage time into an interactive competition complete with target practice, hitting practice, and home run derby games. Paired with Rapsodo’s pro-level data, hitters enhance player development and sharpen their skillset by squaring off against each other in friendly competitions with hitting data-overlay that includes 3D ball flight and hit outcomes for every swing. Players can battle one-on-one, or whole teams can compete in tournament-style games such as bracket or round robin tournaments. Players can also choose how they hit, whether that is off a tee, soft toss, or live pitches.

Interactive Game Mode features include:

  • Hit visualizations
  • Real-time hit outcomes
  • Interactive games
  • Industry trusted data
  • Age-appropriate field sizes
  • Baseball or softball mode

With a Rapsodo annual membership, Game Mode is available to subscribers for $1,000.00 per year. All Game Mode subscriptions come with one license and can be activated on two separate HITTING 2.0 units. The new feature integrates directly with te HITTING 2.0 device and easily pairs with the Rapsodo Diamond App on your iPad, which can be mirrored to your Apple TV.



“The new Game Mode feature will give players a chance to really have fun with their HITTING 2.0 devices and bump up the competition in the cage,” said Batuhan Okur, founder and CEO of Rapsodo. “The data and analytics that the players already know are captured along with the gamified approach Game Mode provides. This allows players to enhance their player development experience and hone in on their skills while battling it out with teammates.”

Trusted by all 30 MLB teams and more than 7,000 coaches across the U.S., Rapsodo’s sports equipment and technology is designed and priced to bring a data-driven edge to player development programs of all sizes. Programs and teams are encouraged to take advantage of Game Mode through their memberships and implement it as a useful tool for both individual training and team comradery.
