Hit at a field off the tee recently were the fence was 320 dead center. Consistenly hit the fence with one of my hits clearing the fence around 20 feet. What would be the exit velocity of a batted ball traveling 340 feet from a stationary position? Also if its possible what would be the bat speed of a swing of this type? Launch Angle? Thanks for your time and info if you respond, JR
My son is attending a Perfect Game showcase this weekend locally. He swings a bat with an Axe handle. I know PG uses wood, but do they have you use a standard bat (since they collect the Diamond Kinetics metrics) off the tee? Or are you allowed to use your own bat for the exit velocity measurement? I figure if he has to use a bat with a standard handle for any testing, he should get a few swings off the tee in the yard to prep.
Boilermaker/KLL, can you let me know what they have/had him use and how much it ends up affecting his normal velo if you know what he’s normally around? Also do they offer muliple lengths for different sized players? I’m curious as we are looking at doing a PG showcase this year. Thanks.
Exit Velocity seems to be getting more and more notice from scouts. My 2021 grandson attended the Baseball Factory/Under Armour Southwest Championship Showcase this summer. They did skills tests for Exit Velocity (Tee), Raw Throwing Velocity and the 60 yd Dash. He scored in the top 5 on every test, but his Exit Velocity was got special notice from scouts in that Every swing tested at 95mph. He also had Raw Throwing Velocity of 90mph which was the fastest for any non pitcher. His goal is to...
Exit Velocity seems to be getting more and more notice from scouts.?????? They did skills tests for Exit Velocity (Tee), .......Are we playing tee ball in high school now??? I go to a game I see a player hit the ball I see how the ball comes off the bat. I see how a pitcher throws. to all those who are in love with this new approach believe it or not the eyes see what they see.
It's just about having an objective measurement. The most objective stats are of course hitting production but in amateur ball you don't know if those stats were done against pitchers throwing 71 or 91 which is a huge difference. Of course there is also the eye test of an experienced scout but this is extremely subjective. Exit velo doesn't mean you can hit but it is a baseline for physical ability and it also means that there is a higher chance to succeed at higher levels. Of course in HS...
In talking to a scouts at a recent showcase, I was told all these skills tests are just bench marks. Good testing can't tell you if a HS kid can hit at the D1 Level but it certainly can tell you who can't compete at the next level. A kid with 95mph Exit Velocity off the Tee may be able to hit at D1, a kid with 75 just can't. You still have to play the game but it is these skills tests that tell you which level a kid is best suited for.
Sorta like when my son was going to showcases and we would see a batter would hit many hard shots during the skills BP pitched with lobs from the L-screen. Then when the batter would play in the games, his line was K, K, K. "But we can teach him.. and when he hits the ball, it really goes"
Scouts have told me, Skills Tests tell you who has the potential to play at the next level. You still have to show ability in the game. They look at a lot of things before they offer a scholarship or consider a kid to draft. It seems if you're 6'2"/6'3" 180/200 can run <6.8, Raw Throw 92+, Exit Velocity 95+ you will get a great deal of interest. Coaches and scouts talk and if you have +Skills and can play word gets around. My 2021 grandson is 6'3"/195 very athletic with +Skills across the...
There are plenty of HS players with 95 mph tee exit velos who will never play college or pro ball. They are called showcase players, and when the things are moving at game speed and the pitched ball has spin and movement, sometimes they aren’t the best players on the field. D1 baseball, and all college baseball by and large, is not just about the HR ball. It’s about being a player who can be counted on to have an effective AB when the chips are on the line, whether that is a RBI single or a...
Absolutely, you have to be able to show your skills in a game. As I mentioned my grandson got on scouts radar due to his skills testing. That coupled with a 400'+HR over the Center field fence Verified he was worth being put on scouts follow list. He is just starting his Junior year and hopefully he'll continue to improve, but a lot can happen in 2 years so who knows.
By NCAA rules colleges weren't able to contact him until September 1 of his Junior year which was only a few days ago. He has been contacted by 6 different colleges. All said they were interested in him but none offered a scholarship which. We are hoping that his hard work will lead to some scholarship offers.
Per NCAA rules, a team can be contacted by the player from the time they take their first breath. So, if a college coach sees a player they like prior to September 1 of their Junior year, they reach out to that player’s coaches (club or high school) and tell them to call them. Teams can offer a 9 year old if they want, age has nothing to do with it. Offering a scholarship and verbally committing are a component of finally getting to the National Letter of Intent, but you won’t get to sign...
Thanks for your input. We understand this will be a very important year for my grandson and he is working with a baseball specific trainer to be the best he can be. He's got good size, speed, +Arm, and ++Power, so hopefully his dreams will turn into offers by the end of his Junior year.
Also, if his game is how you describe, you are going to want offers to the strongest programs possible to use as leverage for any potential signing bonus negotiations. If he is a pro prospect, I’m a little surprised there isn’t an offer already. That usually happens prior to or concurrent with pro scouts taking notice.
Grandson's goal is to get drafted or play for a major college program. He's always been a good player but it wasn't until this summer that we saw these astronomical gains in strength and speed. In the last 6 months his Raw Throwing went from 76 to 90+mph. Exit Velocity off the Tee, from 84 to 95+mph, 60 Speed from 7.4 to 6.92, Size from 6'2"/175 to 6'3"/195 of muscle. We're planning on putting together a Profile with links to videos and sending it to all the colleges on his wish list.
Bob, I can answer your question by saying my Grandson is a truly focused athlete that never gives up. He's a quite kid that leads by example, working hard both on and off the field. Hopefully all his dreams will come true. I know I can count on him doing everything he can to be the best player and person he can be.
If your grandson performed that way all summer, coaches should be asking him to call...regardless of Sept. 1. Does he play for a travel team that assists with recruiting? Most kids throwing 90 before junior year have offers. There is definitely more to it than stats. My son hasn’t picked up a bat during summer or showcases since before sophomore year but these were his showcase stats last time he did...he’s now a PO. Can hit for power, when he connects, which isn’t often enough to win the ...
Btw mlb hitters who can hit more than 25 homers mostly have a max EV of 110+. A pitched ball at 90 at best adds like 15-16 mph vs a stationary ball with ideal contact so to hit 110 you would have to be able to hit 95 off the tee. The elite power guys max at 115 so they would need to hit 100 off the tee. Of course there are also non great hitters who can hit 110 in a game but still that is a baseline you need to hit when you want to get to the highest level
NYC is correct. Need all the factors. What we can say however is that if the ball is struck with OPTIMUM launch angle on a windless day in completely average conditions 80mph = about 300 feet. I see 2019's chart says 275. There are different charts with different results but 80=300 is the most common I have seen. Then its five feet for every MPH from there. so 90 = 350 feet and 100 = 400 feet. A little helping breeze can affect those numbers more than you think. Thus you may see a MLB game...
As a matter of fact... http://baseball.physics.illino...-calculator-new.html Sooooooo many variables, but here are some simplified examples at 50 degrees F (since JR appears to be in MD). - LA of 25, EV = 94.1 mph - LA of 30, EV = 92.9 mph
A ball hit with the same exact exit velo, launch angle, spin rate/axis and in the same exact conditions will go the exact same distance no matter what it was hit with. BBCOR vs Wood? The batted ball data would be different if you're looking at two identical swings put on identical pitches. In favor of the BBCOR I would assume.
I clocked my kids EV with his 32" wood and BBCOR. There was a 3- mph difference in favor for the BBCOR (LS 517). He tried his friend's CAT8 and just wow, the EV was 3-5 mph higher than the LS 517 and he topped out at 99, what a bat! His Bday gift choice was made that day.
Actually, the bat isn't a factor in the trajectory calculator at all. It doesn't matter if you hit the ball with a drop-10 or a 36 oz maple... if the ball left the bat at 95 mph with a LA of 25 degrees, it's going to travel 351'. Other significant factors are headwind/tailwind, backspin, temperature and humidity.
Hate to disagree with you but bat composition does make a difference: https://www.elitediamondperfor...e-of-ball-exit-speed Another reason I know. My son just hit the ball 350', he is 13. He isn't doesn't have an exit velocity of 95+ - I guess I should say composition + COR. so a bbcor will outperform wood. ussa bats will outperform both.
Your article is about all the factors involved that can impact the exit velocity (bat weigh, bat speed, bat construction). The trajectory calculator doesn't care about how the exit velocity was achieved, it's simply correlating EV, LA, and distance (after contact). Try it out for yourself. Below is the same chart when I give the batted ball a 7 mph tailwind. Maybe your son had a 7 mph tailwind and a 90 mph EV?
have tested this "phenomenon". To be exact, a wooden exit velocity may be one (1) mph slower than a bbcor. The entire idea behind BBCOR was to reduce exit speed to that of a wood bat for safety. USSSA bats will outperform both because the composition is entirely different. edit: Launch angle plays a big factor in velocity. A 350 foot frozen rope will have a much higher exit velocity than a moonshot/ Roy Hobbs type of hit. The rest MidAtlanticdad explained.
