Summer Leaders: Plane
August 31, 2020
On Sunday, August 16th, PBR Arizona had the chance to wrap up its summer season with their end of the summer review. PBR had a chance to see many players from across the state at all ages. We also had the chance to see the progress many players have made throughout the summer season or where players currently stand in their development process. In conclusion of the summer season, we wanted to take the time to highlight the leaders from all of our events this summer in specific metrics that we have collected with our Blast & Trackman technology. Today, we will be highlighting the top-15 recordings of On-plane Efficiency from the entire summer.
One of the important tools Prep Baseball Report is starting to implement 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.
ON PLANE EFFICIENCY:
Measures the percentage of your swing where the bat is on the swing plane. Your vertical bat angle at contact establishes the plane for that swing. Plane is a great indicator for making more consistent contact on the barrel of the bat. For more info: On Plane Efficiency
Ideal Efficiency %: 70% or Higher Range: 65%-85%
Here are the leaders from the entire summer:
