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.

ON PLANCE EFFICIENCY

(MAX & AVERAGE)

On-Plane Efficiency is how consistently a player maintains their arm and wrist throughout the swing, or the percentage of the swing where the bat is on-plane. The score shows you where you fall within your skill level, so both of them matter.
