Toronto Mets Join Blast Motion
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.

organizations in Canada.”
