closer to 4. Think about it. Stanton hit a home run with 112 mph exit velocity. It didn't go 560 feet. it went 434 I believe, so fairly close to 4 mph given angle and loft of homerun

It is not totally linear, air drag increases with EV so very hard hit balls don't go as much farther as you would expect. Also wind and temperature play a role.

#### Re: Exit velocity

Lots of variables, but the main ones are launch angle and velo. Using Alan Nathan's trajectory calculator defaults, you're probably around 95 mph. http://baseball.physics.illino...-calculator-new.html

#### Re: Exit velocity

Like midatlantic dad said, lots of variables. It appears as though the chart above is probably taking into account a wood bat. BBCOR the velocity would be less, and non-bbcor/wood, even less.

BBCOR and woodbats perform the same as far as exit velocity. The BBCOR material was created to be a wood bat with a larger sweet spot.

#### Re: Exit velocity

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.

#### Re: Exit velocity

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.

#### Re: Exit velocity

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.

#### Re: Exit velocity

Good point, that is a definite possibility

I assume this chart is for play at sea level? Altitude, even 1000' (doesn't have to be in the mountains). will make a difference for sure.

#### Re: Exit velocity

Correct. A link to the spreadsheet is above. (1,000' of elevation adds 4' to the 353 number in that chart.)

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.
