>I've watched the Womens College World Series. > You are pitting the best pitchers against the worst hitters in your question. Not a fair comparison. Good rotation will NOT produce 52 mph swings. My daughter is 5'1", 115 lbs and has 70-75 mph batspeed. It is not size, it is technique. Rotation produces faster batspeed.
> Is that true, that a 5'1 115 lb. female have a 75 mph bat speed? What's the secret - - tell us what you did to get those results?
> Is 75 mph bat speed the norm for females? Any studies or numbers on females who use the "right mechanics" other than this guy's daughter? It's hard to understand why with those mechanics and that kind of bat speed as only a senior in high school why she would end up at a D3 school.
Perhaps softball was not the MOST important factor in her choice of schools. Perhaps the D3 was the best educational "fit" for her.
