How to get started
Select your option, register and pay
Note the date/time
What to bring
All equipment needed for that skill. Glove, bat, catching equipment (if applicable).
There are water fountains and vending machines at all facilities, but it's still encouraged to bring a drink.
Spread the word
Show up and perform
What to wear
Athletic attire is needed. Players may wear baseball pants, if they would like, but it is not mandatory.
All facilities are turf and tennis shoes or turf shoes work best on the surface. Molded spikes can be worn but metal spikes are not allowed.
How it works
Players hit Bating Practice with a Rapsodo Hitting Machine. Rapsodo accounts then transfer all data to Driveline Traq.
All players and pitchers do OnBaseU mobility and range of motion assessment. We then manually enter results into Driveline Traq.
Pull Down Velocity
All players and pitchers do pulldowns "crow hop" to get their peak athletic velocity. We then manually enter velocities into Driveline Traq.
All players are have biomechanic sensors attached to them to capture their swing or throwing motion.
Pitchers throw a bullpen with a Rapsodo Pitching Machine. Rapsodo accounts then transfer all data to Driveline Traq.
Reporting & Analysis
All data and metrics collected are now in Traq. The data is aggregated to show player trends, comparisons and percentiles is every area assessed.

Baseball Tech Integration
API's allow seamless integration of data and all metrics, of baseball tech hardware, to your personal Traq profile.
Reporting & Analysis
Data and metrics collected in Traq are aggregated to show your trends and comparisons with other players.
We can build, assign and schedule custom workouts and skill plans to your profile. All workouts are tracked monitored by our staff.
For the length of your membership, you can update your profile and sort your own data for analysis. Integration continues for any of your sessions on the affiliated tech hardware.

Rapsodo Pitching Data
See what Rapsodo can measure and how it will evaluate your pitches
How fast a pitch is traveling during flight, measured in miles per hour (MPH).
The tilt or angle of the baseball from the release point, measured in degrees, created by the Magnus effect. The Magnus Effect is created by the air pressure surrounding the spinning baseball on its path to home plate.
Strike Zone Analysis
Instantly see Strike Zone feedback while automatically tracking Strike Percentage and Heatmap Breakdowns.
The height of the ball at the point of release.
Rapsodo Pitching Machine
The rate at which the ball spins during flight, measured in rotations per minute (RPM). There is a stronger correlation between spin rate and swinging-strike percentage than between velocity and swinging-strike percentage.
The percentage of spin directly impacting the movement of a pitch. Spin Efficiency is the ratio of true spin to total spin.
The ballflight is show in two trajectories. A dotted line represents what the pitch would have done without spin and the solid line represents the actual movement of the pitch.
The distance away from the center of the rubber from the left (-) or the right (+).
True Spin Rate
The spin directly impacting the movement of a pitch. Also known as “useful spin,” it is perpendicular to the direction the ball is traveling, deflecting the otherwise straight horizontal and vertical path of the ball.
How much a ball has moved when it crosses the strike zone compared to what its position would have been without spin. Break is measured horizontally and vertically in inches.
The horizontal angle the ball was released out of the hand from the left (-) or the right (+).
The vertical angle at which the ball was released out of the hand.

Rapsodo Hitting Data
See what Rapsodo can measure and how it will evaluate your swings
Exit Velocity is the speed of the baseball as it comes off the bat after contact.
The rate at which the ball spins during flight after contact, measured in rotations per minute (RPM).
Rapsodo Hitting Machine
Launch Angle is the vertical angle at which the baseball leaves the bat after contact.
The tilt or angle of the baseball from the contact point, measured in degrees, created by the Magnus effect. The Magnus Effect is created by the air pressure surrounding the spinning baseball on its path from the bat.
The direction, plotted on a baseball diamond, that an in-play ball takes in flight.
3D Ball Flight
Instantly track the ball off the bat to see the actual ball flight of the projected hit.

If a student is struggling to perform, a coach’s job is to quickly identify and correct the problem. OnBaseU certification gives the coach a deep understanding of how the body’s strengths and weaknesses affect their player’s ability to perform at any level. Baseball and Softball coaches can quickly identify any physical restrictions that may be limiting a player and implement simple techniques to improve these limitations. Having the ability to connect a player’s physical abilities to their technical skills gives the coach a complete understanding of why a player does what they do.
OnBase University’s mission is to educate players and industry professionals on The Body-Baseball or The Body-Softball relationship through its ‘OnBase Certified’ educational program. This program was developed by the expert panel of OnBase University Advisory Board members consisting of baseball and softball industry leading experts.
