Frequently asked questions
For Little League about 45-55 mph. For high school 55-75. For college and the pros mid-60s to mid-80s.
There are a number of variables that produce a high bat speed. Many people use an overload underload program. As of today this is the best ways scientists and researchers are able to increase. You have to have an external goal that you’re consciously trying to obtain. You also have to have an accurate measurement system to gauge progress. If there is erratic feedback, you will have outliers that contaminate the data it demoralizes the hitter into feeling like they can’t reach
You can’t use a radar gun to measure bat speed because it’s measuring exit velocity of a batted ball. If you’re taking dry swings then the radar gun won’t be accurate because the bat is traveling in an arc. Radar guns are designed to measure objects moving directly at or away from the gun.
After doing bat speed training for 20 years with many hitters, we’ve consistently produced hitters average bat speeds 5 MPH over a span of 6 weeks. It’s also not uncommon to increase bat speed much more than that.
