The Physics Behind The Cause

PITTSBURGH – As part of his presentation “How Technology Unlocked My True Potential At The Plate” at the 2017 ABCA Convention, Diamond Kinetics’ co-founder Dr. Buddy Clark tells us the ‘physics behind the cause’ and how SwingTracker can give players and coaches insight into what needs to happen during the swing in order to get higher launch angles, combined with increased exit velocity.

Moreover, Diamond Kinetics’ Technical Advisor Dr. Alan Nathan¬†offered up a series of thoughts yesterday, stemming largely from the same viewpoint relative to bat/ball contact point, approach angle and what is necessary to achieve maximum distance and/or exit velocity.

‘Unlocking The Handcuffs’ Through Launch Angle & Exit Velocity

PITTSBURGH(1 min read) In Part 4 of Dr. Buddy Clark and Dan Koosed’s presentation at the 2017 American Baseball Coaches Association Convention, “How Technology Unlocked My True Potential At The Plate”, Mr. Koosed looks at a case study of an advanced, 12U youth player who increased his exit velocity and launch angle and ultimately, his outcome potential & results.

As Mr. Koosed so eloquently puts it in the above video:

“It’s very easy to teach this stuff when you have the right information to unlock the handcuffs”
