St. Louis, MO, March 5, 2020 – Rapsodo, the sports data company known for helping athletes analyze real time metrics to perfect their game, today announces the launch of their Rapsodo Certified program. The Baseball Hitting course is the first to roll out, with Baseball Pitching, Softball Pitching, and Softball Hitting to follow. The online, video-based courses give coaches the skills to better understand the metrics provided to them through Rapsodo’s HITTING 2.0 and PITCHING 2.0Monitors, currently used by all 30 MLB teams.
