Attack Angle is the angle of the bat's path, at impact, relative to horizontal. A positive value indicates swinging up, and a negative value indicates swinging down, where zero is perfectly level.
Bat Speed is the observed speed of the sweet spot of the bat at impact. The sweet spot of the bat is measured six inches from the tip of the bat.
Blast Factor is a holistic swing score between 0 and 100
Connection (at impact) measures the relationship between your body tilt and vertical bat angle at impact.
Scores your Early Connection and Connection (at impact) for each swing on the scouting scale of 20-80.
Early Connection measures the relationship between your body tilt and vertical bat angle at the start of the downswing.
Measures the percentage of your swing where the bat is on the swing plane.
Peak Hand Speed is the observed maximum speed as measured on the handle of the bat (measured six inches from the knob of the bat).
Scores your On Plane Efficiency for each swing on the scouting scale of 20-80.
The average Power generated during the swing is found from the effective mass of the bat, the Bat Speed at impact, and the average acceleration during the downswing.
Scores your Rotational Acceleration for each swing on the scouting scale of 20-80.
Rotation measures how quickly your bat accelerates into the swing plane.
Learn how you can improve your swing quality by focusing on plane, connection, and rotation.
Time to Contact is the elapsed time between start of downswing and impact.
Vertical Bat Angle is the angle of the bat with respect to horizontal at the moment of impact.
Learn how your body tilt and vertical bat angle afect your Early Connection and Connection at Impact angles, measured in degrees.
When comparing Bat Speed and Rotational Acceleration, think of it as two athletes getting to the same bat speed but one gets there faster.
Learn about the relationship between On Plane Efficiency and Attack Angle.
Learn about the relationship between On Plane Efficiency and Wrist Flexion, in the bottom wrist throughout the swing.
