STATE GAMES BLAST MOTION LEADERBOARD: ROTATIONAL ACCELERATION


PBR California Staff

New Episode LIVE now!-At The Yard Podcast

LATHROP, CALIF. -One of the important tools Prep Baseball Report has implemented at its events is the use of Blast Motion sensors. During batting practice, the Blast Motion sensors measure Swing and Impact Metrics across several categories. Swing metrics measure pre-impact mechanics centered around plane, connection, and rotation while Impact metrics measure pre-impact performance outcomes based on ball contact.

Rotational Acceleration allows us to measure how quickly a hitters barrel is accelerating through the zone providing a glimpse of his present and future power potential. Hitters with high rotational acceleration generally have higher bat speed, can adjust to pitches better, and generate more power at the plate.

Below are the top 20 performers from CA State Games Participants in the Rotational Acceleration category as measured by Blast Motion sensors.

ROTATIONAL ACCELERATION:

Measures how quickly your bat accelerates into the swing plane. Rotation is a good indicator of how you build bat speed by sequencing properly. The quicker your rotational acceleration, the more power you will have and the more time you have to adjust to pitch locations. For more info: Rotational Acceleration
