Bombers Bunker Baseball Academy in Troy, NY built its reputation servicing serious athletes who want to become elite level baseball players. With a desire to expand services, they added HitTrax to their facility in 2016. The addition of this technology allowed them to build upon their training program, focusing on elite hitting instruction. Advanced metrics such as exit velocity, launch angle, and point of impact are heavily utilized in the program for immediate feedback to the player and verification that adjustments are producing desired results. To further enhance the value of their program, Bombers Bunker added a gaming component using the HitTrax Online Gaming feature (w/ SyncPlay). This feature allows Bombers Bunker to connect with other HitTrax facilities and play a full 7-inning game in real-time. SyncPlay is the innovative method that allows both teams to bat simultaneously, eliminating any downtime while keeping the excitement level high. With SyncPlay, a full 7-inning game can be played in 30 minutes. At The Bunker, workouts are held every weekday from 4 to 8pm, and they have connected with Perfect Game to provide real time games vs. other facilities with similar training times. All locations arrange for 4-5 players to breakaway from the team workout at each 60 minute interval. Over the course of the 4 hour time period, each group will play 2 full games, allowing the players to take “game time” at bats, practice situational hitting, while injecting competition into their training regimen.
The Bombers Bunker has added an 80,000 square foot outdoors training area complete with Turf fielding area, 70x30 pavilion with turf ground and three pitching mounds, and six batting cages for year round use in addition to our 20,000 square foot indoors facility. Just another reason to make the Bombers Bunker your home for Baseball or Softball training.
