PITTSBURGH – (2 min read) Full video of Dr. Buddy Clark and Master Hitting Instructor Dan Koosed’s presentation “How Technology Unlocked My True Potential At The Plate” at the 2017 American Baseball Coaches Association Convention.
During the presentation, Dr. Clark – the founder of Diamond Kinetics – and Mr. Koosed – owner and operator of Pro Swing Rx in Anaheim, Calif. – discuss the importance of how the right combination of exit velocity and approach angle can maximize your potential output.
Moreover, the duo discusses how technology – including Diamond Kinetics’ SwingTracker and inMotion Systems’ HitTrax – can help measure and quantify these metrics for players and coaches.
They also look at individual case studies of youth, high school, college and professional players and show scientific evidence of how the players numbers improved with the appropriate mindset and swing cues.
Lastly, Mr. Koosed – with the help of Dr. Clark’s engineering background – illustrates a quick, easy, simple way that involves turning one’s batting cage into a complete launch angle measuring device with just a few pieces of tape and a tape measure.
Mr. Koosed also takes us on a tour of the SwingTracker App and tells us the metrics – and features – both he & his students use the most.
