Hi all,

I think Jack makes a relevant point (I remember reading something along these lines somewhere on this site) regarding bat speed -- generating great bat speed is useless unless you generate near the instant of contact. If you're fooled on a pitch, it's possible you reached peak speed too early. The differences could be attributable to timing differences.

Another possibility: Different bat models (Steve, if you're reading this, how much difference would an ounce or two make to otherwise identical contact at, say 90 mph?). One more possibility: Identical bats moving at identical velocities can produce different results if contact is made at different distances from the sweet spot (and great differences if one swing hits the ball right on the "node" and another does not.)



Post a followup:
