Stance & Load
AVERAGE PLUS
"Stance" describes the starting position of the hitter's feet, hands, bat,body and balance. "Loading" involves shifting body weight towards the back leg for power and quickness. The loading of the hands should be small, quiet and diagonally upward creating rhythm and proper timing. The barrel of the bat MUST be controlled.
Stride & Direction
AVERAGE MINUS
"Stride" describes the movement and distance of the front foot stepping forward. Sometimes involving an inward kick, it creates the timing of the swing.
Staying Back
AVERAGE
The hitter should "Stay Back" with their weight and balance slightly on the back leg. Coaches look for the hitters weight to stay centered and NOT "drift" too far forward past the hitters center line which can cause a poor swing or hitting result.
Swing, Contact & Finish
AVERAGE MINUS
The "Swing Path" is how the bat moves through the strike zone. There should be a level or flat lifting path as the barrel of the bat enters the back of the zone and explodes to contacting the ball. The path needs to be more linear than rotational in this phase allowing for more plate coverage and opportunity to hit the ball.
Aggressiveness
PLUS
An aggressive hitter swings hard every time, attacks the pitch, and is fun to watch. A hitter who swings tentatively to avoid missing the pitch will create bad habits.
Overall Comments:
Like we talked about getting into your launch position we need to make sure that your stride length is your bat length!

Metric
Category Descriptions
Bat Exit Velo
Exit velocity is measured using a radar gun and is the only direct measure of the power behind a hit. Studies have shown that for every extra one mile-per-hour added to exit velocity, the ball will travel an estimated four to six feet further, depending on its trajectory and launch angle.
Launch Angle
Launch Angle represents the vertical angle at which the ball leaves a player's bat after being struck. Average Launch Angle (aLA) is calculated by dividing the sum of all Launch Angles by all Batted Ball Events. If you have a good Attack Angle when hitting the ball and a good finish in your swing, your Launch Angle will generally be good too.
Distance in Zone
Distance In The Zone measures the length of the hitting zone along a line toward the pitcher. It is determined by the region ‘swept’ by the bat. A longer hitting zone means a greater opportunity for the bat to make contact with the ball and gives the batter an opportunity to put the ball in fair territory.
Barrel Speed
The maximum speed of the bat’s barrel during your swing, at a point 20% from the tip of the bat. Max Barrel Speed greatly affects both the distance and speed at which the ball travels after impact. Faster barrel speed leads to more hard hit balls and a higher ball exit velocity.

DI/All-American/Pro Potential. In the MLB Scouting world, we call this "Above Average" or a "Plus" swing. Nice job in putting a very nice-looking swing together here. There are obviously always things you can do to improve, so pay attention to the videos that are recommended here to help your swing advance. Great job here!

5

High School Player/College Potential. Very nice-looking swing. It's good to know as a player that you have a nice AVERAGE swing, but there are pieces here in your swing that can improve, so work hard and focus on the areas of your swing here that have been identified that are not well above average (6+). Watch and learn from the videos attached and work hard. You can do this!
