Copy the supplied BattingTrak files into the new hitter's folder.

Open a trial you have collected with your Motion Analysis Corp. system (same number of cameras and the same models of Motion Analysis Corp. and reference video cameras) and save it with a BattingTrak related name in your new folder.
