            Ever wonder what it’s like to swing a baseball bat like Eric Hosmer…and whether you could do the same thing with your swing? If you’re one of the expected 50,000 Royals fans headed to FanFest this weekend, you can find out.

            Head to The University of Kansas Hospital booth next to the batting cages and you can be one of the first in the area to try out their new K-Vest biomechanical analysis machine before it goes into full time use at The Sports Medicine and Performance Center.

            Martin Dolphino, physical therapy manager for orthopedics and sports medicine, talks about the benefits of the new device, its medical uses, how it helps analyze the swing, why fans will enjoy the experience with the vest and all the different experts they’ll find at the booth.
