Lady Dukes Partner With WIN Reality

The Lady Dukes take training to the next level with WIN Reality Nationwide partnership.

WIN Reality’s VR batting app will improve player performance throughout the organization while creating tighter bonds between teammates and coaches in-season and off.

AUSTIN (August 1, 2022) – This month, WIN Reality has partnered with The Lady Dukes softball travel organization to launch a revolutionary new product specifically built for organizations to allow interactive team practices in the virtual world.

This product gives coaches the ability to create customized practice plans built around real game-speed pitches for their teams while tracking individual progress across each team through a custom, organizational-wide dashboard.

The Lady Dukes’ implementation of WIN Reality’s latest technology is helping the whole organization sharpen their focus on dramatically increasing at-bat performance for the next generation of softball stars. Players and coaches are now able to import real pitches from any pitcher they’re likely to face so that hitters can practice against them anytime.

James Lamar, the President of the Lady Dukes program agrees, “WIN Reality’s anywhere, anytime VR format adds a new dimension to our player development by enabling players and coaches to work together virtually without adding on-field practice time or travel. As a bonus, bad weather is no longer a consideration.”

Mr. Lamar added, “Not only can each team work together on the platform, WIN Reality’s custom dashboard is able to span our entire nationwide organization, providing actionable insights for all of our coaches and players. We finally have a tool that allows a large community of players to feel individually connected to form deeper relationships with their teammates and coaches year round.”

WIN Reality Founder & CEO Chris O’Dowd says of the partnership, “The Lady Dukes feature some of the nation’s top-ranked players, so we are very proud to provide our complete training package of individual bat attachments for each player, dedicated player development staff, and customized progress tracking portal, to help provide a crucial edge for these amazing players in this increasingly competitive sport.

We feel we are helping to build the future of softball around an incredibly effective and accessible training platform”

Pitch Tunneling: How hitters can train to overcome it

Over the last few years, you’ve likely heard the term “Pitch Tunneling” during a broadcast, or seen it mentioned online. The concept itself isn’t new, and is something that great pitchers like Greg Maddux instinctively understood before it had a name. Developments in high-speed cameras, virtual reality, big data, and 3D modeling, have made it possible to visualize pitch tunneling (from the perspectives of the pitcher and hitter), and understand its effects. In 2017, after more than two years of work, Baseball Prospectus unveiled their research on what they termed pitch tunneling, and introduced it to the greater baseball community.

Elite Baseball Training: How VR transfers to the batter’s box

Since baseball began, undoubtedly its most difficult training challenge has been replicating in-game pitching conditions for hitters to practice against. Pitching is a scarce resource that is too valuable to waste on batting practice. Consequently, as players we practice against coaches throwing 50% of game speed, take “simulated” at-bats against teammates in scrimmages, and try to stay fresh at local batting cages. All the while doing this, we hope that it will transfer to helping us in actual game environments. While some of us may look great at our local batting cages, or against our coach’s lazily tossed batting practice,
