Trigger To Impact


THE SCIENCE BEHIND TRIGGER TO IMPACT:

Trigger To Impact is the amount of time elapsed from the start of your forward bat motion to the moment of impact.

 


WHAT IT MEANS FOR BATTERS:

A lower Trigger To Impact time results in a higher Quickness score.

REAL WORLD SIMILARITY: The amount of time it would take for a car to go from its starting point until its end point. In this instance, the end point would represent the bat making contact with the ball. 


WHAT IT MEANS FOR COACHES:

Improving Trigger To Impact time will 1) help the batter wait longer to identify the pitch, 2) help determine the location of the pitch and 3) allow easier react time to the pitch.

DK TIP: A bat that is too heavy may slow Trigger To Impact time and thus not allow one to maximize their swing potential.
