What It Means For Hitters:

Max Barrel Speed greatly affects both the distance and speed at which the ball travels after impact. According to Diamond Kinetics technical advisor Dr. Alan Nathan, “bat speed is roughly six times more important to batted ball exit velocity than the incoming velocity of the pitch.

What It Means For Coaches:

Faster barrel speed leads to more hard hit balls and a higher ball exit velocity, which in turn, increases the chance for the ball to result in a hit.

TRIGGER TO IMPACT

The Science Behind It

Trigger To Impact is the amount of time – measured in milliseconds – elapsed from the start of your forward bat motion to the moment of impact.

SwingTracker measures Trigger To Impact from the instant the player begins accelerating the bat toward ball, until the precise moment of impact.

MAX ACCELERATION

The Science Behind It

Maximum Acceleration captures how quickly a batter speeds up their swing from start until impact, and relates directly to the force and torque applied to the bat.

What It Means For Hitters

Higher Max Acceleration allows you to start a swing later – thus giving you more time to recognize the pitch – but still produce a high rate of bat speed and momentum in the bat.
