Why Does 108 Choose Yakkertech?
The Yakkertech device applies the only methodology capable of direct measurement of spin rate and spin axis. With the use of vision imaging technology, capturing the actual movements of the baseball seams can now be used as an additional development tool for athletes. The 108 team has a high regard for the accuracy of each data point collected when designing pitches with their athletes.
The Yakkertech System is the most cost efficient Pitch Tracking Software on the market. In addition, they have just launched their Ball off Bat system – capturing data no other system can. Systems run from $6,000 – $12,000. Comparable in-game units fall in the range of $20,000 – $40,000. 108 values the accuracy of the data, at a fraction of the cost.
In-Game & Practice
The Yakkertech system can be used both indoors and outdoors, in games and in practice making it perfectly suited for baseball and softball training, wherever it takes place. At 108, they find tremendous value in the ability to have the same system providing data in their training facility and in-game. This allows them to track and provide accurate interpretations of their athlete’s development.
