Some may wonder that even though Todd beat me in bat speed. How did I beat him in exit and velocity. The answer to this question is in absorption.
You can swing as hard as you want but if at impact if the ball pushes your bat backwards then you are loosing exit velocity. The largest gap in these numbers that we have seen is 105 mph swing and a 76 mph exit speed. This was because of a sprained wrist.
The same applies to pitching. If the front knee moves forward at foot plant then you are absorbing all of the linear momentum you have creating therefor a lover velocity throw. We have seen 3 mph jumps just by not moving the knee.
