What's Inside

Bat sensors spit out a lot of data. What does it all mean? Which ones should we focus on?

 

This mini-course introduces each individual Blast Motion metric, how it’s defined, why it’s relevant, desired ranges, averages sorted by playing level, etc. It also offers visual examples of each metric represented in the swing, and suggests how certain Blast metrics can help predict a hitter’s strengths or weaknesses. 

 

Key Lessons 

  • Which metrics are most important?

  • How do pitch height and location influence Blast metrics?

  • How does point of contact influence Blast metrics? 

  • How do certain metrics influence other metrics? 


Driveline’s Blast mini-course is THE perfect resource for anyone new to bat sensor technology, or anyone who feels like they’re not getting the best use of the sensor they currently have. This course will teach you which metrics to focus on, how to pair them to video, and how to get the most out of your bat sensor.
