Revisiting Exit Velocity

I was recently reminded of this blog post from 3 years ago regarding the silliness of showcase organizations measuring and reporting Exit Velocity in an uncontrolled fashion with pocket radars, cage balls and random front toss.  

Here is that blog post:  https://coachgallion.com/2015/02/11/exit-velocity-seriously/

Thanks to Hittrax, Rapsodo and Diamond Kinetics for bringing order to this chaos.  Data that is accurate and meaningful. 

Unfortunately, I understand that there are still showcase guys with pocket radar on one hand, tossing mushy cage balls in the other and writing down random results in the other.   If you are going to measure and report data on players, please spend some money to make it accurate and make players swing wood bats to eliminate doctored metal bats from the equation.
