Some interesting team stats from the SEC web site...I assume they have quite a few fairly solid hitters there who job description is to mash...I hope the sarcasm is clear!!

Missouri - AB's - 1126 Extra base hits - 99

S Carolina AB- 1097 EX hits 87

Tenn - 1056 and 81

A&M 1187 and 106

Vandy 1157 and 95

Bama 1076 and 87

Ark - 1166 99

Auburn 1146 and 90

Florida 1083 and 76

GA 1133 and 84

Kentucky 1115 and 117

LSU 1150 and 96

Ole' Miss - 1060 and 75

MSU 1187 and 109

less then 10% of AB's are hits are for extra bases...but you can find "loads" and "tons" of 14u's who are driving it deep - those dumb asses in the SEC should really start recruiting better...again I hope the sarcasm is clear!


Jeez...  this is frustrating.  Here is my direct quote:

There are tons of 14's who can hit the ball 350-400. Let's just take the low end of that. 350 feet is 90mph of exit velo. That translates to about low to mid 80's off the tee. Look at showcase results. There are a good number of kids who can do that

WHO CAN being key here.  The raw ability to do so.  It has to be developed to show up occasionally in game. At no point in time ever did I even remotely suggest there are 14's by the ton hitting 400 foot home runs IN GAME left and right.  Never 

By the way do they have any good pitchers in the SEC?  Whose job it is to keep the hitters from elevating? I hope my sarcasm is clear.
