Madison Preseason I.D.: Blast Motion Board


By Andy Sroka
Illinois and Wisconsin Assistant Director

On March 14, the PBR Wisconsin team hosted the Madison Preseason I.D., at GRB Academy in Windsor, Wis. This was an open event for all high school classes (2021-24), and gave our staff an ample look at the area's top players as, perennially, the largest event on our winter circuit with over 170 players in attendance.

Last week, in our first post-event piece from this event, we published our biggest takeaways and highlights from Sunday’s showcase within our Quick Hits story, and highlighted more top performances in the Statistical Analysis. We're diving deeper into the data today with swing analysis provided by Blast Motion.

Today, with the help of our Blast Motion sensors, we're diving a little deeper into the data to see what we can find.

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-Plane Efficiency: This metric measures the percentage of your swing that the sweet spot of the bat is considered to be On Plane. The reference plane is defined at the moment of impact. The percentage of your swing On Plane is determined by the amount of speed generated within that reference plane.
