Get Baseball Playing Tips on Your iPad

Posted by at 2:00 pm on April 2, 2010

ShotZoom Software, creator of Golfshot: Golf GPS, will unveil the first instructional baseball app on the iTunes Store with major league star Jason Giambi.   Baseball Gameplan (BGP), available today on the iPhone and iPod touch, and April 3rd on the new iPad, will provide 15-30 second tips and 30-60 second drills for baseball players on high-definition, multi-angle videos. More information can be found at   Baseball Gameplan is designed to help players with fundamentals, hitting, infield, outfield, pitching and catching. The app is targeted for Little Leaguers to high school players, along with their parents and coaches.

The app, which unlike a DVD, can be viewed on the baseball field, allows users and parents to actively monitor performance, measure improvement and interact.   The instruction includes players talking to users and demonstrating tips and competitions. The level of instruction runs the gamut of easy to advanced drills, and ShotZoom’s Drill Meter allows players to track progress and see improvement while they “Practice with a Purpose.”

The instructors include Giambi, a former American League Most Valuable Player who now plays for the Colorado Rockies, and five others with major league and college experience. They are David Upchurch, a former Kansas City Royals pitcher; Leo Daigle, a former third baseman with the Chicago White Sox and Baltimore Orioles; Ty Johnson, a catcher at perennial collegiate powerhouse Arizona State University; and Jeremy Giambi, a former major league player with the Royals, A’s, Phillies, Red Sox, White Sox and Jason’s younger brother.

“We wanted this app to be hard-charging,” said Jeremy Giambi. “The idea that any player at any skill level can download this app, learn a quick pointer and then replicate it on the field real-time is amazing,” added older brother and current Colorado Rockies player Jason.

Baseball Gameplan includes basic fundamentals and hitting with Jason Giambi for $4.99. Additional upgrades include: pitching $3.99, fielding $2.99, catching $1.99. High-definition videos will be available on the Apple iPad for $4.99. Future releases will include new players, translations and content specific to certain geographic areas.
