"NewtForce is an invaluable tool for pitching development. It’s easy to interpret ground force data allows coaches to understand what’s really going on with a player's lower body. Ground Reaction Forces synced with video in real-time allows players to connect the feel and real, and make the most of the time they have to develop.”

--Wes McGuire

Early Beginnings

When Wes Johnson was the pitching coach of the Arkansas baseball team, he realized there was a gap in the technology available for training pitchers. While motion capture and ballistics technology provided insight into a pitcher's delivery, Johnson wanted to know what was happening at ground level - specifically, the amount of force a pitcher was exerting.  ​Johnson reached out to his former classmate, Kyle Barker, who owned Texas based aerospace engineering company. Together, they set out to create a solution that would provide the missing information.  ​Barker's background in aerospace engineering and persistent experimentation (during which time, Paul Wanamaker nearly worked himself to death numerous times while Kyle watched or played golf) led to the creation of NewtForce’s Instrumented Mound. This 10-foot long, 5-foot wide, turf-covered piece of technology, which has a regulation downward slope, captures force in 3 directions at every point in their delivery.  ​The data collected by the NewtForce Mound, along with images taken from a high-speed camera, are then analyzed and used to improve a pitcher's performance and reduce the risk of injury. This innovative technology is revolutionizing the way pitchers are trained.
