USF Sports Management Prof Michael Goldman Comments on Carlos Correa and Increasing Use of Tech in Pro Sports

USF Sports Management Prof Michael Goldman Comments on Carlos Correa and Increasing Use of Tech in Pro Sports | Sports Entrepreneurship - Barnett 4040625 | Scoop.it
Houston Astros shortstop Carlos Correa credits a bat sensor that measures his swing as a key part of his and the team’s success.

 

Three months ago, Houston Astros All-Star shortstop Carlos Correa flat out told me he was going to have a breakout season and tech was going to play a big role.

 

I was expecting an endorsement pitch during a quick call about how he uses Blast Motion, a baseball bat sensor designed to help everyone from little leaguers to middle-aged softball players improve their swings. Our chat happened a week after Correa set the tone for his season, crushing a 450-foot home run on opening night.

 

But rather than offer a canned line, Correa lowered his voice and in hushed tones told me how he and his team really use the sensor. As many as four times a week, Correa attaches it to the end of his 33.5-ounce bat to measure his swing speed and impact. He says using the sensor during extended batting practice sessions before home games is particularly important.

 

"Listen, baseball is a game of feeling and constant adjustments,"

the 22-year-old said. "And sometimes your swing may be a little off at times. [Blast Motion is] definitely helping me because every at-bat counts and I can't afford to waste any of them."

 
Correa's certainly not wasting them.
 
This is a career year for the shortstop, who on Tuesday will be appearing in his first All-Star Game in Miami. His Astros, with 60 wins in 89 games, hold Major League Baseball's second-best record. And the success comes as baseball, America's national pastime, is diving head-first into next-gen tech with players embracing sensors and other wearable tech to track their performance.
 
This season, MLB is letting players wear the $500 Whoop wrist-worn biometric monitors that measure heart rate and fatigue during games. It joins two other devices that can now be used in games: the $150 Motus Baseball sleeve set  (to track throwing) and the roughly $60 Zephyr BioHarness (a chest strap monitoring heart and breathing rates).

 

Blast Motion, which costs $150, can't be used in actual games.

 

But the increasing use of tech, from trackers to help athletes improve play to sneakers that could help people run marathons in under two hours, demonstrates a new level of gamesmanship, said Michael Goldman, a sport management professor at the University of San Francisco. 

 

"Today's athletes are geared to get as much information as possible on their performance," he said. "Baseball is similar to golf where players have almost immediate access to analyze their swings and at times make very small changes which could have substantial impact on the field."

Theo Wilkerson's curator insight, January 25, 4:49 AM

The way technology is taking over and impacting sports. Some may call it cheating or is this simply a new generation finding ways to make it easier?

 

Mikhael Stewart F.'s curator insight, May 24, 4:19 PM
The use of electronics in the bid to bring about better performance on the part of those who are in the professional arena shows how our world of sports has evolved.  Managing people who use technology for the improvement of performance means that those who are in the field of sports management must keep up with the advancements in order to have the skills needed to anticipate the needs of players.

Sports become 'geo-tech' with GIS, GPS, and Drones

Sports become 'geo-tech' with GIS, GPS, and Drones | Sports Entrepreneurship - Barnett 4040625 | Scoop.it
Everyone loves a good sports game. Tennis, Rugby, Football, or for that matter cricket – a box of popcorn and a bottle of Coke, I will watch any of it. But, have you ever realized the hidden geographic patterns in sports? Do you know that GIS, GPS, and Drones are being actively used in sports for performance analysis? No? Let’s change that today!

Over the past few years, the game and the business of sports has changed exponentially. It is not about winning or losing anymore but about the statistical and geographical analysis and the planning of future game strategies accordingly. The so-called ‘union’ of sports and tech is, therefore, not new. At present, geospatial technologies which include GIS, GPS, and Drones are being used by coaches, players and teams worldwide. For instance, Aussie Rules have been using GPS since 2004 while the NFL teams have been using drones since 2015. Let’s dive a little deeper and see how these technologies are revolutionizing sports for the better.

“Dozens of colorful computers and widescreens at Zebra Technologies' command center intricately track the on-field movements of all the nearly 1,700 players active across each week's National Football League games.”

"These companies are providing immediate access to digitize plays, so teams are able to analyze it very quickly," he said. "For some fans, they are attracted to not only what is happening on the field, but also with 'the game within the game,' as the more information and data they have, the more they love."
