Typical training for young baseball players often involves team practices, 1-1 in-person coaching sessions, or driving to the nearest batting cage.
If you’re the parent of a kid who plays baseball or softball at a serious level, you know all too well how hard it is to ensure they get the training they need without becoming a full-time chauffeur.
What if you could bring the on-field experience into your living room? Enter WIN Reality …
What is WIN Reality?
WIN Reality is a state-of-the-art baseball and softball training tool that utilizes virtual reality (VR) to provide a variety of drills, workouts, and competition modes.
The WIN Reality VR experience is truly something to see
Developed by actual players, the Win Reality app accurately simulates high-speed pitches and delivers real-time results and feedback. It’s the brainchild of a former pro baseball player and general manager.
- Instead of only practicing swing motion, players can use WIN Reality to improve timing, positioning, and pitch recognition.
- Open to all ages and skill levels (we’re talking 9-14 year olds to Division 1 athletes and professionals), WIN offers over 600 virtual pitchers that can throw anything from Little-League level up to 100 mph fastballs — and everything in between.
- You can choose from 3 types of yearly subscriptions: Standard, Pro, or Elite Academy.
The Standard Plan is just $19 a month when purchased for a year, and includes unlimited pitches, a personalized performance improvement plan, and team trainings, competitions, and special events. The Pro and Elite Academy plans are built around group or 1:1 sessions with professional level hitting coaches.
How does WIN Reality work?
VR technology allows users to experience immersive 360 degree environments (e.g., a baseball stadium) simply by wearing a headset. Combining this tech with sports gives players unprecedented access to game speed practice anywhere, anytime.
Users need a virtual reality headset (Meta Quest is recommended), their favorite bat, and a bat attachment (which is included in every yearly plan). Then, simply put any valuable / breakable objects away and your player is ready to swing for the fences.
All you need is a headset, and it’s batter up!
Once inside the app, users can choose from a variety of different game modes:
- Exhibition mode replicates the environment of a real game with a field of players and a stadium of fans.
- The pitch simulator allows players to focus on specific skills, such as release point, plate discipline, and swing timing.
- Team Training is a series of live hitting competitions that involves teammates and gets the adrenaline pumping.
Exhibition mode simulates a real game in a real stadium
WIN Reality automatically tracks all of your hitting data and even uses AI to create personalized trainings for your skill level.
What makes WIN Reality unique?
There’s a reason why thousands of pros and amateurs alike use WIN Reality to improve their hitting IQ. Although it may seem like a video game, WIN offers tangible results designed to improve players’ actual physical game with meaningful reps.
Unlimited pitches allow players to experience more at-bats in a few weeks than most pros do during a full season. With the Live Pitch mobile app, parents can precisely control pitch locations to improve pitch recognition and provide a custom experience that’s irreplaceable in real life.

In addition to a pitch simulator — which tells you with 100% certainty whether a missed pitch is actually a ball or a strike — WIN-Reality includes 1-1 coaching capabilities and live competitions.
