Five Tool x S2 Cognition

Five Tool Baseball is pleased to announce its partnership with S2 Cognition.

S2 Cognition is used by top NCAA, MLB, NFL, and MLS teams to measure player performance and train better athletes. S2 Cognition delivers a revolutionary approach to helping athletes understand how in-game decisions impact their performance from youth to pro.

S2’s technology platform brings visibility to an athlete’s cognitive skill sets and identifies their strengths, weaknesses, and the “whys” behind their performance. Here is how the process works…

1. TAKE THE S2 EVAL
Athletes perform a 30-45-minute evaluation on a specialized laptop computer that measures how they process and make split-second decisions in their sport.

2. GET YOUR S2 SCORE REPORT
Results are instantly revealed in a detailed report featuring the individual scores of the athlete’s abilities – analyzing each of their strengths and weaknesses, along with their overall S2 Score.

EPISODE 34: WHY S2 COGNITION IS A GAME-CHANGER, FEATURING DR. SCOTT WYLIE

Forever, baseball people have asked an important question: why? Why does that player chase sliders? Why does he have great instincts? Finally, we have a product that can test the brain and, for the first time, truly answer that question. Dr. Scott Wylie, Co-founder of S2 Cognition, joined Dustin and Drew to explain this game-changing product. It could change development as we know it.

Below is a sample chart from a baseball report featuring the percentile ranking of an athlete’s individual skill sets, which equates to their S2 Score total (in orange). The bottom of the chart indicates how the athlete’s scores compare to other athletes in their reference group.
