Q: Do you think there is any chance of ultimate ever getting the technology to track spin rates of a disc? Major League Baseball tracks exit speed and velocity of all types of hit balls as well as spin rates of various pitches. They use Statcast and radar technology, but I was wondering if you thought that ultimate might get the chance to have some of that technology or some sort of beta testing on discs to track that spin rate. It seems like it could be very useful for helping players improve their throws in various conditions and be incredibly insightful about various throws and grips.
