K-Zone Baseball Academy Hosts Summer Hitting League
Dan Kopitzke of the K-Zone Baseball Academy has been a strong supporter (and contributor) to HitTrax Analytics since the system was installed this past April. Using the HitTrax Entertainment Module, he has also been hosting one-day tournaments and hitting leagues for his diverse clientele. These events have been a major source of revenue for K-Zone as players and teams are charged an entry fee for participation.
In their first hitting league, K-Zone played host to a 6-week league consisting of six teams with 3-5 players each. The games are set-up to move quickly as they utilize a Hack Attack pitching machine and limit the games to six innings. "Having 3-5 players per team is ideal as it keeps everyone in the action and ready to hit", Kopitzke comments.
"The HitTrax System has definitely provided a spark to our training environment and has opened a whole new revenue stream - hitting leagues and tournaments," Kopitzke continues. "We have 30+ players and family members in our facility every Wednesday night cheering on the teams. The players love the immediate feedback and the opportunity to hit live in the stadiums."
Dan and his team at K-Zone further stated that their activity over the past few months will definitely pave the way to higher returns during the upcoming fall and winter seasons. Everyone that sees the system first hand is impressed and awed.
"We are definitely gaining traction on the market place using creative ideas to bring people in the doors to see the HitTrax system including free open houses to league fee reductions for bringing in new players on your roster. Once they see the system in action, they are hooked. It's not been difficult to convert new customers. The challenge has always been and will continue to be getting new people into the door. The HitTrax provides the people in our market just another fantastic reason to come and see us."
