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.
Have to agree with previous post that the figures on that chart do NOT MATTER in terms of bat used! You can try to sway me on that point, but you have to explain to me how a BPF 1.15 bat can somehow impart properties to a batted ball whereby that ball will travel farther than the laws of physics will allow! I believe bat speed is being confused with EV. YES, for a giving bat speed, the EV will be significantly higher for the BPF 1.15 bat than it would be for wood or BBCOR. BUT, the Exit...
USSSA BPF 1.15 bats do not defy physics, the type of composition coupled with a lighter swing weight is what causes greater EV. Bat speed commonly confused with exit velocity, but the two are very similar. Exit velocity is correlated with bat head velocity. I was not disagreeing with the chart, I was attempting to explain that bbcor and wood bats exhibit similar exit velocities.
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.
