Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear. I’m Fred Fishkin. Bringing some fun tech into baseball practice. That is what a company called Playfinity is doing with Backyard League 2.0. The company, based in Norway, is out with the Gaming Baseball that connects to an app. CEO Pippa Boothman…says there are sensors in the ball…so it isn’t designed to be hit with a bat..
“So this is to play catch and baseball drills together but not to play a game of baseball. And then the best thing is that the player can play with all the other players around the world. So just like in gaming where you can compete with all the other gamers around the world, you can play these games with the players around the world, but by being active and throwing the baseball around.”
Smart and fun. Backyard League Gaming Baseball sells for about a hundred dollars. Find more at www.playfinity.com.
