Technology taking strides in Major League Baseball

Major League Baseball is taking strides to implement new wearable technology for their players. This technology will not only help players and coaches get statistical information on how their players are pitching and/or throwing, but it will also help with maintaining the prevention of injuries. Other professional organizations, such as the NBA, NFL, and NHL, have already started capturing data from their players. However, one main concern with this is the privacy of the players.

Although player privacy is a major concern, the MLB has started implementing this wearable technology but with limitations on what can be distributed from the captured information.

Motus Global and Zephyr Technology are two companies that are returning for their second season with MLB for on-field use during practices and games.
