On Saturday, Jan. 29th, the Northern Colorado Preseason ID was hosted by D-BAT NorCo, an open event for 2022-2025 graduates. Talents were on display in front of the PBR Colorado staff, while data was being recorded by state-of-the-art technology. 

Today, our post event coverage continues as we analyze pitching data collected from our Blast Motion sensors. unit on site. We take a look at some of the top performers in each measurable collected via Blast Motion.

Body Rotation: A swing that has the appropriate relative contributions of body and bat rotations is an efficient and Powerful swing that maintains proper sequencing. An efficient baseball swing is one in which the body creates the initial movements, which is then transferred to the arms and out to the bat, thereby maximizing Bat Speed through this proximal-to-distal kinematic sequencing movement pattern.
