Baseball Swing Rotation Trainer

Project number: 
Chicago Cubs
Academic year: 
Baseball hitting coaches are continuously searching for new and novel ways to evaluate batters and increase their success at the plate. A player’s ability to transfer energy from the body to the bat is one of many skills needed to have success. A tool is being proposed here that will increase and strengthen a batter’s ability to rotationally accelerate and decelerate their body during a swing. The tool will also measure the batter’s response for evaluation and progress tracking.
Work with Mech. Science and hitting department (Justin Stone) to develop a body/swing rotation trainer to teach batters how to respond to high rotational loads and transfer them more efficiently into the bat.
