PRESEASON ALL-STATE: BLAST MOTION BOARD

On Sunday, Feb. 27th, Colorado's Preseason All-State Showcase was hosted by Marucci Clubhouse in Castle Rock, Colorado with the top some of the top uncommitted talent across the State in attendance. Talents were on display in front of the PBR Colorado Scouting Staff, while data was being recorded by Prep Baseball's state-of-the-art technology.

Today, our post-event coverage continues as we take a look at the Blast Motion performances via Blast Motion sensors from last weekend's Preseason All-State.

Body Rotation: A swing that has the appropriate relative contributions of body and bat rotations is an efficient and Powerful swing that maintains proper sequencing. An efficient baseball swing is one in which the body creates the initial movements, which is then transferred to the arms and out to the bat, thereby maximizing Bat Speed through this proximal-to-distal kinematic sequencing movement pattern.
