Monsterful VR Expands Major League Baseball Presence With Acquisition of TrinityVR Technology
Monsterful VR, a virtual reality baseball company, has agreed to acquire an exclusive license to TrinityVR‘s baseball technology, which is currently used by several Major League Baseball (MLB) organizations. Monsterful’s RibeeVR platform allows players of all levels to take virtual reps against skill and age-matched pitching. The addition of the TrinityVR technology expands Monsterful’s presence into the professional level and creates an experience unmatched by any other product on the market.
“We are big believers in the impact that interactive VR will have on player development at all levels of baseball,” said Brian Kopp, Partner & Group CEO of Phoenix Sports Partners and Executive Chairman of Monsterful. “Combining the TrinityVR technology with our world-class development team allows Monsterful to work with players from MLB to youth academies.”
TrinityVR’s system accurately models real pitches with accurate ball-flight path, spin, and pitching dynamics using high-quality biomechanics and pitcher composition. “In my 40 years of baseball experience, TrinityVR is the most immersive and game-like environment I have experienced,” said Dan Duquette, former MLB General Manager and TrinityVR Senior Advisor. “The feedback from former and current MLB players has been phenomenal. Monsterful and TrinityVR are revolutionizing player development and game preparation.”
Julian Volyn, Co-Founder and Chief of Product for TrinityVR, added, “We are excited to grow our professional-grade XR pitch recognition and batting simulation platform in strategic partnership with Monsterful. We are confident that the Monsterful team will dominate the professional and amateur markets by leveraging our technology.”
