The Big 3 of Hitting: Bat Speed

The ability to swing the bat fast cannot be understated. Bat speed is to hitters as velocity is to pitchers. Bat speed is directly correlated with exit velocity, which is the speed at which the ball leaves the bat. Exit velocity is a key measure of hitting power, and it is also associated with a number of other positive outcomes, such as increased base hits, doubles, and home runs.

One mph of bat speed = 1.2 mph of exit velocity = 7 ft of distance

There are a number of factors that contribute to bat speed, including strength, power, and technique. However, training bat speed specifically can help hitters to significantly improve their exit velocity and on-field performance.

There are a number of ways to improve bat speed, but one of the most effective ways is to train with blast motion sensors, hittrax, and overload/underload training bats.

Blast motion sensors are devices that attach to the bat and measure bat speed, swing angle, and other metrics. This information can be used to track progress over time and identify areas where improvement is needed.

Hittrax is a hitting simulator that allows hitters to practice against a variety of pitches and in different game situations to measure on-field performance. Hittrax provides immediate feedback on exit velocity, launch angle, distance, and batted ball outcomes.

Overload/underload training bats are weighted bats that are used to train the muscles involved in the swing. Overload bats are heavier than regular bats, and underload bats are lighter than regular bats. By using overload/underload training bats, hitters can train their muscles to produce more power and speed during the swing.

If you are serious about improving your hitting, you should consider attending our speed training camp.

Here are some specific benefits of attending a bat speed training camp:

  • Use state-of-the-art equipment, such as blast motion sensors and hittrax, to track your progress and identify areas where improvement is needed.

  • Train with overload/underload training bats to increase your bat speed and power.

  • Compete against other hitters in a simulated game environment.

  • Receive immediate feedback on your performance.
