Playfinity’s Backyard League Gaming Baseball turns a game of catch into a video game through a connected mobile application for iOS and Android devices. The Backyard League Gaming Baseball is the same size and weight as a regulation MLB baseball, and it connects to an iOS or Android device via Bluetooth. It allows players to track different stats about each throw they toss and catch, such as speed, airtime, height, and transfer speed. The Backyard League mobile app allows players to build and track their baseball skills across six different mini-games that focus on different skills, like hand-eye coordination, consistency and transfer speed. Once players have tried all six games at least once, they’ll unlock the application’s League Mode, which allows them to compete against other players around the world by playing games and comparing stats. The Backyard League Gaming Baseball is designed for kids 6-14, and it offers 70 hours of play time on a single cell battery. Available at backyard-league.com and Amazon.
