Toronto Mets Join Blast Motion

by Darryl Reid

The Toronto Mets Baseball Club is pleased to announce the expansion of our

relationship with Blast Motion Technologies. In 2017 we the began a pilot program

with select teams that allowed us to gather data on our hitters and refine team hitting

plans. Moving forward, all Toronto Mets position players will have their own BLAST

sensor in order to begin accumulating swing data.

BLAST motion technologies are currently used by a number of NCAA / MLB teams in

the development of their organizational Hitting Plans. Each Mets player, as well as

Toronto Mets Coaching Staff will have access to this data and be able to monitor

progress prior to the beginning of our indoor season in January. Swing metrics will be

used to identify swing deficiencies and prepare Individualize Development Plans for

each player in the organization.

These Individual Development Plans will continue to evolve over the course of our

Indoor Program, and players will wear sensors during Team Practices, Intra squad

games and CPBL play during the spring and summer.

“Blast is excited to play an integral role in player development for the Toronto Mets.

Blast will help Mets coaches offer players their own individual hitting plan tailored to their

specific needs. We look forward to partnering with one of the top amateur baseball

organizations in Canada.”
