Dashr | Blue - Operating the
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.
This drill uses 2 or more Dashr|Blue Timing gates. You likely already have your devices registered, if not - please check out the Flying Drill as it is the same process.
Setting up the drill
To set-up this drill you will have a starting gate on regular tripods positioned just outside the batter's box.
If you are including splits (maybe you are doing home to 2nd with a split at first), set them up one either mini tripods across the edge of the base, or on regular tripods above the base - your preference.
Set-up the finish laser on the edge of the bag the athlete is running to, as pictured in the video above.
To get to the Base Running drills go to Sport Collections > Baseball and you will see Baserunning which allows for you to customize it however you like, or specific combinations of bases - like home to 1st or home to 2nd.
Power on all lasers, and connect them one at a time.
Once all devices are connected, press "Start Testing".
Running the drill
Check in the appropriate athlete (details here) - optional.
With QuickRun on, when the athlete moves through the starting gate -timing will start (time will turn blue - indicating that timing is taking place), and you get a result when you cross the next gate.
With QuickRun off (option in settings) you will see “Set” and “Reset” buttons to give you control of when a test starts. Press "Set" once the athlete is ready to take off. Press "Reset" to clear the time for the next athlete.
