Coaching with Blast Insights

The Blast Baseball swing analyzer provides coaches and athletes with direct access to the most accurate swing metrics available. When combined with a premium services subscription and the new Blast Insights, you’ll be able to help your players build a better swing.

Swing Quality

Blast data has proven that the best swing quality is achieved when players focus on three areas:

PLANE
Measures the percentage of your swing where the bat is on the swing plane. Your vertical bat angle at contact establishes the plane for that swing. Plane is a great indicator for making more consistent contact on the barrel of the bat.
DRILL: PVC PIPE
CONNECTION
Measures the relationship between your body tilt and vertical bat angle at impact. Maintaining good connection (90 degrees) for all pitch locations is an indicator of dynamic adjustability.
DRILL: TRIGGER, TRIGGER, FIRE
ROTATION
Measures how quickly your bat accelerates into the swing plane. Rotation is a good indicator of how you build bat speed by sequencing properly. The quicker your rotational acceleration, the more power you will have and the more time you have to adjust to pitch locations.
DRILL: STEP BEHIND
