Coaches Claim REPLAY is Big Reason for Kids Performance

Thursday Jun13, 2013. Dulles Little League announced it's 2013 10U All Star teams, and it comes as no surprise that 23 of the 24 athletes chosen to represent the league train at REPLAY Sports. The teams coached by Mark Pettit and Glen Dawson claim the use of REPLAY, its staff and the technology are a big reason the kids performed as well as they have so far. Said Coach Pettit, "Were it not for the use of the Simulator these kids would be relying on antiquated means of working and improving their games. The use of the spacious facility has allowed the kids to work on not only their hitting techniques, but to field thousands of ground balls. Most of these kids wouldn't be here without a facility like this right in their own backyard."

Replay Sports N Training to Sponsor @VivaLoudoun Baseball and Softball Coverage

Posted Wednesday, September 12, 2012 on Viva Loudoun

owners John Murphy and Jim CraigReplay Sports N Training, a new 15,000-square foot indoor batting and training facility, has signed on to sponsor Viva Loudoun's baseball and softball coverage for the 2012-13 school year.

"We welcome Replay Sports N Training as our baseball and softball sponsor," said Viva Loudoun publisher Dan Sousa. "It is the help of local businesses such as Replay that allows to continue our coverage of Loudoun athletics on all levels."

In addition to batting cages and tunnels, Replay offers baseball and softball pitching simulators that are the most advanced and realistic training systems available. Replay is the only facility with this technology in Virginia. In addition, Replay offers video analysis for golf, baseball and softball.

Replay is also offering reconditioned equipment at affordable prices.

Replay is owned by John Murphy and Jim Craig, both of whom have been involved with local sports at all levels with Murphy the former president of Dulles Little League and Craig a former board of director with Eastern Loudoun Babe Ruth Baseball.

Sports Training Facility To Open In Ashburn SaturdayIndoor Batting Cages

Posted August 10, 2012 by Lindsey Brookbank on Leesburg Today website:

The day before launching their sports training business, John Murphy and Jim Craig tested out the technology they hope will set them apart from competitors.

“That pitch is ugly,” Murphy said enthusiastically, as his son Patrick hit ball after ball, each one thrown from a simulated baseball player pictured on a screen. Teenage boys intently watched too, in awe of the precise and advanced pitches the screen could spit out. "I've never seen a pitch like that," one of them said.

Craig stood behind the batting area, picking and choosing the pitches he wanted the simulated baseball player to throw, using the ProBatter PX2 Baseball Video Simulator—a machine that displays a pitcher on a screen who throws rising fastballs, sinkers, cutters, split finger fastballs, curves, sliders and changeups between 60 and 100 miles per hour.

Indoor Batting Cages“It’s as close to live pitching as you can get,” Craig said. “It’s all computerized. It can be used for softball or baseball; you pick different age levels from young kids to the pro level. There is a life-sized picture of a pitcher—right-handed or left-handed—and they throw a ball at you. It gets to the point of release, and a ball comes out of the screen.”

Murphy and Craig will allow baseball and softball players to use the technology in their new facility Replay Sports N Training, located off Red Rum Drive in Ashburn, which will offer training clinics and camps. Come Saturday, Aug. 10, the owners are welcoming community members to scope out the 15,000-square-foot space at its grand opening from 5-9 p.m.

At the event, attendees can test out the ProBatter, as well as other equipment, such as the RightView Pro—a video analysis system that films a baseball or softball player’s swing during nine steps. Afterward, the software shows a player his swing during each step, against a professional player’s swing.

ProBatter being used by player“They can compare their swing and break it down to nine steps to a pro swing, so they can see where they are breaking down in their swing,” Craig said, before Murphy added, “It’s a comparative analysis to the pros.”

As far as Murphy and Craig know, no other commercial entity in Virginia is utilizing these technologies, making Replay Sports N Training competitive with similar businesses such as Diamond Sports Training in Sterling and Diamond Elite Baseball in Dulles. “To me, those are the two things that really stand out differently,” Craig said.

Aside from the ProBatter and RightView Pro machines, the facility also features typical baseball and softball tools: six training tunnels, 12 batting cages and multiple pitching lanes. The space also offers golf swing and motion analysis software. In the future, Murphy and Craig would like to extend the company’s scope to include lacrosse.

They will also construct a retail store, where they will sell new and used baseball, softball and golf equipment from the following brands: BBCOR & Wood Bats, Akedeema, Wilson, Rawlings, Easton, Titleist, TaylorMade, Cleveland and Ping. Before purchasing any piece of equipment, players will have the opportunity to test it out in the facility to ensure they like it.

“Kids, they grow out of their gloves, grow out of their bats,” Craig said. “Parents don’t have to keep spending money buying new equipment. And you get to try it before you buy it, which is key.”

The men will receive used equipment from those who frequent the facility and refurbish it for further use. “We will buy a glove [for example] from them or give them credit in the store. We will recondition it, and put it out for sale,” Craig said.

“A new glove, you know how stiff they are. A player will go out in the field and try to catch a ball. What happens is they don’t catch it. Some of them just walk away from the game [because of that], and that’s not fair for them,” Craig said. “Used and broken-in gives them a better chance to learn the game and try the glove out in the training facility.”

Murphy will serve as director of baseball operations, while Craig will be the general manager. Both men have vast backgrounds in the baseball industry.

Owners John Murphy and Jim CraigMurphy played baseball in Loudoun County as a child and teenager, before becoming a catcher and centerfielder for University of Maryland, Baltimore County’s team from 1976-1981. He later served as president of Dulles Little League, and is now a board member for the Ashburn Athletic Association and general manager/coach of the off-season program for Broad Run High School baseball.

Craig played American Legion Baseball before attending Florida State University. He has coached various levels of baseball for more than 20 years and served on the Board of Directors for Eastern Loudoun Babe Ruth Baseball. He now coaches elite-level high school players.

Alongside them will be Director of Pitching James Austin, who was a pitcher for Virginia Commonwealth University’s team, and Baseball Hitting Instructor Matt Blow, who was a designated hitter and third and first baseman for Virginia Tech’s team. Eventually, there will be others, including former D1 baseball players.

The facility also includes a space for birthday parties, as well as other sporting opportunities for special needs children.
