There is no line being drawn in the sand when it comes to technology. The continued rise of technological development serving our world appears limitless. We are seeing a brash new wave of technology being instituted in the fields of medicine, science and inside our classrooms as well as in countless other areas.
Baseball is in the midst of an era of technological development. Every Major League organization is now equipped in having the most updated, state-of-the-art technological devices on the market. Always in search for competitive advancement, professional teams leave no stone unturned when it comes to providing newfound, progressive ways to build upon player development.
These professional teams use a complexity of technological systems to maintain an edge. Some include counting the number spin rotations of a baseball coming out of a pitcher's hand, while others monitor launch angles or break down a hitter's entire swing using a three-dimensional component.
Long gone are the days when players such as Ted Williams, Mickey Mantle and Bob Gibson never had, nor needed, this type of equipment to make them great. None of us had ever heard the term "sabermetics" before Michael Lewis' book "Moneyball" was published back in 2003.
