Effective Velocity 101 - Is Pitch Sequence Art or Science? (Part 2)by Perry Husband
Effective Velocity is a deep subject but you gotta start somewhere. In this presentation, Perry covers what you need to know. Part 2 of 2 covers:
- Why 1 Pitch Pitchers Are Still Effective
- Science & Analytics in Baseball
- Understanding Pitch Sequence
- So Much More...
This eye-opening talk will give you the foundation of what your pitchers need to know to start missing more bats & dominate on the mound. Or how hitters can start better reading pitches and pitchers to square up more balls.
Perry Husband is a pioneer in the world of Baseball Science.
He introduced many modern hitting metrics to baseball, including Exit Velocity and Launch Angle.
Working with Jay Bell, he used metrics to diagnose and improve performance in both Exit Velocity and Launch Angle in one session with Jay’s swing.
Jay had an increase of 10 MPH in Exit Velocity and improved his Launch Angle to the equivalent of today’s ‘Barrel’, a ball hit at 100 MPH at a Launch Angle of 25-30 degrees. He also improved his contact consistency by almost 50%.
Perry also introduced ‘Tubing’ to the baseball world, inventing the original J Bands, sold by Alan Jaeger. The Resistance Belt concept was also a surgical tubing product introduced in the Hitting Is A Guess series for training hitters. Plyometrics in hitting training was the workout prescribed in that same video series from 2001.
The underload/overload concept in hitting training was designed and introduced by Perry in the Hitting Is A Guess video, promoting explosiveness, balance and proven bat speed and Exit Velocity increases.
Through the groundbreaking discovery of Effective Velocity, there were countless pitching breakthroughs, including Ev Pitch Tunnels, Location Adjusted Speed (True Reactionary Speed) and many, many other Deception Metrics.
