So I'm gonna be honest and say I'm late to the party. I know this data and ways to measure it have been around for a while but I'm just now able to start utilizing it. I want to make sure I'm using it correctly. Next week I plan on gathering data in some areas to see where we are and get an idea where to go.
So my question(s) - what would be the numbers be for an average HS baseball player that falls in the 14 / 15 age range and 16 to 18 age range in these areas?
1. Exit velo from a tee
2. OF / IF velo
3. Bat Speed
4. Bat Attack Angle
5. Anything I'm missing and how to get it
I have purchased a Pocket Radar and the Blast knob sensor to get this data. The reason why I want averages is when I get this data then I can compare where my guys are at versus the average kid. Our last two seasons haven't been very good and that needs to change. Also, I can use this data as justification if I decide to cut a kid in February if they are below average and really don't show any promise.
