Today we look back through our 2022 Summer Showcases and highlight the Blast Motion statistical leaders. Blast technology is designed to help coaches evaluate and improve a player’s swing through automatic swing quality assessments, video analysis and comparisons, 3D swing tracer visualizations, and personalized performance reports. Bringing this technology to Prep Baseball Report events, arms the player with a wealth of knowledge about their swing.

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 vs. pulling the bat with your hands. The quicker your rotational acceleration, the more power you will have and the more time you have to make a decision at the plate.
