LATHROP, CALIF. - One of the important tools Prep Baseball Report has implemented 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.

Not to be confused with exit velocity which measures the speed at which the balls leaves the bat, Bat Speed instead measures the speed of the barrel at impact. Essentially it tells you how fast the sweet spot gets through the zone. In other words, the more bat speed a hitter has, the more damage he can do at the plate. 

We posted recaps of Day OneDay Two, and Day Three  and a Statistical Analysis where we highlight standouts from those portions of the event. We will roll out much more content in the coming days/weeks.

Before that though, we present the Top 20 performers from the 2020 California State Games in the Bat Speed as measured by Blast Motion sensors.

BAT SPEED:

Bat Speed is the observed speed of the sweet spot of the bat at impact. For more info: Blast Bat Speed.
