Data is becoming increasingly more important in baseball. And while there is plenty of technology on the market to track it, one company is signing some of the best in the sport to help promote it.
Rapsodo, a radar and tracking technology company that helps develop the skills of both hitters and pitchers on the diamond, has gained recognition in the baseball space. It’s the official player development partner of the MLB Player Development Pipeline. The athletes they’ve partnered with are all ranked as a top prospect in the 2024 MLB Draft, and have each used the product and data to help improve their game.
Rapsodo’s NIL roster includes:
Jac Caglianone, University of Florida
Chase Burns, Wake Forest University
Vance Honeycutt, University of North Carolina
Brody Brecht, University of Iowa
Blake Burke, University of Tennessee
“These five athletes are some of the best college baseball players in the country,” Rapsodo CEO, Batuhan Okur, said. “The fact that these players chose to partner with us proves Rapsodo is effective at helping players at the most elite levels of sports achieve their maximum potential. We’re confident that through the use of our data, these athletes are able to elevate their in-game performance and reap the benefits that follow that.”
Rapsodo’s radar technology is used by both professional and collegiate teams across the country. It provides real-time data and insights to understand progress overtime and help athletes unlock their potential on the field.
“Rapsodo has elevated my game to a new level and has been an integral part of my college playing experience,” Caglianone said. “I feel fortunate to have the opportunity to work with them on a more personal level and look forward to my growth as a player.”
