    ESPN VR Batting Cage

Program Title:

    Advances in XR



    The ESPN VR Batting Cage uses an innovative combination of tracking data with dynamic graphics to create a unique, immersive experience to engage both sports fans and technologists. Although the game is primarily experienced individually through a virtual reality (VR) headset, features like Tournament Play invite users to come together and engage with sports content in a new, virtual space. Users can engage with pro players via tracked pitch data in a way that they are unlikely to in the physical world, and that is more tangible than watching a baseball game.
