Hi Zig

I am aware of the hard work and dedication you put into your project and you are to be commended for it. During 1996-7, we ran a similar study at the U of CA (San Bernardino) using their newly acquired Motion Study computer with 4 position motion detectors, pressure sensors and high-speed cameras. Sensor points (looked like miniature Ping-Pong balls) were placed at each joint of the batter's body and the linear velocity and angular displacement rate for any limb (or joint) at any point of the swing could be analyzed.

Zig, I am sure the data from our study would confirm the findings you just presented. After analyzing your data, does a batting principle emerge that has not been published or discussed on this and other sites? With the pool of batters we had to work with, I could not find predictable correlation's between the angular rate of the various sensor points and bat speed development.
