60 yard Dash
The 60 yard dash is commonly used in testing baseball players. When possible, we recommend testing with a 10 yard split to get a measure of initial acceleration and allow for EAPI report generation. This requires 3 gates to include the 10 split, or only 2 gates if you do not have a split.
The Pro-Agility is a test of speed, explosion, body control, and ability to change direction. This drill uses a stationary start and requires 1 timing gate. An additional gate can be added if a 3-point start is desired - though it is uncommon in baseball.
Base running is a commonly measured metric in baseball. With Dashr you can measure any configuration of baserunning - home to first is given here as an example.
Pop time is measured as the moment the pitch hits the catcher's mitt to the moment the intended fielder is projected to receive his throw at the center of the base. This is a quick motion that is full of potential bias. You can standardize it with 2 timing gates.
The standing long jump, also called the Broad Jump, is a test of explosive leg power. It is one of the fitness tests in the NFL Combine and was also once an event at the Olympic Games. When using Dashr|Jump hardware for this test you can electronically perform this test with an accuracy of 0.01 in. You can also manually enter jump measurements into the Dashr app.
Getting biometric/anthropometric data on your athletes is key for both evaluation and tracking progress. You can record bio data manually through the Dashr app, or you can use our BioStation to automate these measurements.
