> Hi Chris,
> The bat speed that is important is at the beginning of the swing. Most people have decent bat speed at the end of their swing. Never measured my kids bat speed because of this. The very best hitters generate a higher bat speed early in the swing allowing them to see the ball longer.

This is why ball exit speed is the preferred indicator. Use consistent bat type (wood vs metal) and pitch speed (tee, toss, BP speed).
