Driveline Baseball’s history and success is rooted in Research and Development (R&D), and has been since it was founded in 2007 by Kyle Boddy.
First, we evaluate our training through a review of peer-reviewed sports-science articles. Is there a tested or theoretical foundation for what we wish to implement with athletes?
Second, we do our best to replicate those studies in-house with our athletes to determine if those findings will work for our population of athletes.
Not until a drill or training methodology has met both parts of the two-part test do we include it with our programming. From there, our software team develops the tools and reports to help our trainers leverage the data and analytics to train our athletes.
Brief reviews of the research papers that drive our creative process are available at our Pitching Research webpage.
