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.
When my son participated in a showcase last year they had certain bats that they had to use in the cage off of a tee for the EV, but could use any wood bat in the games.
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.
It seems like they had an option of 32" or 33". It didn't really change what he normally gets. It's just a normal Marucci wood bat.
