Little League Baseball Uses GoPro as a Training Tool

San Diego's CBS 8 affiliate showcases how GoPro is being used for video analysis to revolutionize sports, starting as early as Little League Baseball! Carlsbad youth baseball coach Chris Lopez uses the camera as a tool to help engage and train his players. "As a coach and as a dad I know my limits, the players have an attention span of about five seconds. Pull out the GoPro and app and all of a sudden they're engaging and it's a lot of fun," Coach Lopez stated.

The GoPro app allows coaches and parents to analyze and provide instant feedback about a player's performance through a tablet or smartphone. Allowing a player to see what they look like swinging a bat or throwing a ball is a great way for them to visualize what they need to do to improve. The GoPro camera is also a great way for young athletes to build a database of content to share with potential teams and coaches throughout their span as an athlete. The GoPro app is a great tool for everyone, including coaches!

Mark Burnett, five-time Emmy award winner and avid GoPro customer, said in a previous statement, "We have used GoPro cameras in some of our biggest productions, like Survivor and The Bible. GoPro has allowed us to capture and share fascinating new perspectives that previously weren’t possible or were too costly, which in the end makes for better story telling. We are always excited to see what GoPro is working on next."

"In a world of smartphones and increasingly small cameras, GoPro is still the film fans device of choice and the rugged gadget that will launch the careers of many future directors. If in doubt, check out the home made rocket that took a GoPro to space or the shark footage, both on YouTube." - T3 Award for the GoPro HERO3
