NORTH SHORE, PGH – As we continue to learn more about Trigger To Impact time, let’s take a look at specific SwingTracker data and see what that tells us.
The #DKData infographic compromises one standard deviation above and one standard deviation below the mean average of the Diamond Kinetics SwingTracker data, relative to Trigger To Impact.
In terms of how the numbers look, the trend lines in the graph on the right follow the path we would expect.
Starting with the highest SwingTracker skill level on the far left – Professional (PRO) all the way to the lowest SwingTracker skill level on the far right – Adult Rec (AR), the line steadily moves upward, save for a slight dip down at the Collegiate Softball and Junior High Baseball levels.
The trend lines on the other graph representing one standard above the mean (the graph on the left), do not follow a normal trend line until the last four skill levels. This tells us that at a higher level (professional, college baseball, college softball, high school varsity), there isn’t that much difference separating the best. However, that small difference is ultimately what matters most at the highest of levels.
As you look through the infographic, make note that the lower the number, the better the swing in the instance of Trigger To Impact time.
