At the 2021 Tennessee Preseason ID, our Blast Motion Sensors collected data on all 31 position players, allowing to better understand the swing mechanics. Blast is the global leader in swing analysis and used by nearly every MLB organization. Key hitting metrics and Blast Motion Scores will also live inside player profiles at PrepBaseballReport.com for the benefit of college coaches and recruiters, which will help prospects advance to the next level. Following a Prep Baseball Report event, players will receive access to BlastConnect in the Blast App, that unlocks critical insights and actionable data from their performance.

Key Terms

Bat Speed: The observed speed of the sweet spot of the bat at impact. For more info: Blast Bat Speed*MLB Avg: 66-78 mph   MiLB: 63-75 mph   College: 66-75 mph

 

Rotational Acceleration: Measures how quickly your bat accelerates into the swing plane. Rotation is a good indicator of how you build bat speed by sequencing properly. The quicker your rotational acceleration, the more power you will have and the more time you have to adjust to pitch locations. Measured in Gs.  For more info: Rotational Acceleration 
*MLB Avg: 16.8 g MiLB Avg: 12.6 g College Avg: 12.9 g

 

On-Plane Efficiency: Measures the percentage of your swing where the bat is on the swing plane. Your vertical bat angle at contact establishes the plane for that swing. Plane is a great indicator for making more consistent contact on the barrel of the bat. For more info: On Plane Efficiency 
*Ideal Efficiency %: 70% or Higher    Range: 65%-85%


Peak Hand Speed: the observed maximum speed as measured on the handle of the bat (measured six inches from the knob of the bat). Peak Hand Speed will occur prior to the moment of impact, very close to the commit time in the swing when the wrists unhinge. For more info: Peak Hand Speed *MLB Range: 23-29 mph MiLB Range: 22-28 mph College Range: 21-27 mph

*Per Blast Motion
