The baseball swing has been one of the most studied motions in sports, and yet there are still a great number of questions regarding what it takes to perfect the art of hitting. At Diamond Kinetics, we understand how complex the swing is and the variety of approaches there are. For the first time hitters and coaches now have powerful data and visual evidence at their fingertips to identify opportunities for technique improvement.
Diamond Kinetics provides insight and feedback on four major swing components:
Speed is a very important part of the game. Particularly in hitting. It is a crucial factor in creating ball exit speed which correlates with how far the ball might travel if it doesn’t come in contact with another object (including a fielder’s glove). SwingTracker calculates four specific Speed metrics that are then combined into your overall Speed score.
Power at its core is a measure of energy and how that energy is transferred to the ball at contact. The Power score is directly related to speed, but also includes other factors such as the mass of the bat and bat acceleration. SwingTracker calculates three specific Power metrics that are combined to calculate your overall score.
