"The Most Effective Instructional Tool in Baseball"
Step by Step Solutions from Coach Preston Peavy!

  • Problem: Camcorder Based Video Motion Analysis Systems ONLY Work at 30 Frames Per Second & Produce Slow, Unclear Video.

    • 30 Frames Per Second CAN NOT Show The Entire Movement, Because It Occurs Too Rapidly.

    • Weak Processing Software Takes Coaches HOURS to Process ONE Athlete's Action! No time Left to Teach!


Actual Camcorder Frame


EXAMPLE: Our Upper Level Baseball Hitters Can Frequently Swing in Less Than 12 One-Hundredths of a Second!
That Means You MIGHT Get 3 Slurred Frames With Your Camcorder Systems As Above & They Can Be ANYWHERE in the Movement!
You MISS the Full Extents of the Movement or Action!
Plus, It Can Take 2 to 4 HOURS PER PLAYER to Manually Produce Inaccurate Quantified Movement Information!


This is what WE see with OUR HIGH SPEED SYSTEM....Which would you rather have to evaluate a player?

  • PROBLEM: REAL HIGH SPEED Video Motion Analysis Used to Require an Expensive Indoor Studio That Could Cost $500,000 to $1,000,000.

    • High Speed Video Motion Analysis Cameras ALONE can Cost $30,000 to $150,000 WITHOUT Needed Computers for Analysis

    • Total Video Storage on High Speed Cameras is Frequently Limited to JUST SECONDS

    • Cost is Prohibitive. Only Pro Teams or Rich Athletes Can Afford the Studio Motion Analyses.
       

  • PROBLEM: Athletes Do NOT Do the Same Thing in a Studio  with Markers All Over Them That They Do on a Field in a Game!

    • Infrared or Other Markers Need to be Placed On the Athlete Indoors for the Studio Systems to Work.

    • You Cannot Place Infrared or Other Markers on the Athlete Outdoors in Games & Practices
       

  • PROBLEM: REAL On Field Performances Could Not Be Quantified & Measured.

    • Studio Systems Cannot Work Outdoors or at Stadiums, etc.

STEP 5: Our Sports Specific Coaches Then Do a
Baseball Specific Analysis for Areas for Improvement .

(Yes, We Can Gear Up For You To Do This for Golf and Fastpitch, Too! Special Order)
Here is the unbelievable amount of baseball specific information
Coach Peavy pulled from the above motion analysis:

Hitting Analysis for Professional Hitter #7:
This hitting evaluation is intended to be used with the included full video motion analysis files attached.

BASEBALL EVALUATION:     Essential Visible Factors

Average effective swing time for athlete approximately .0155 sec to .0190 seconds or 15 & ½ to 19 hundredths of a second.
See timer clock in videos during swings, from initial intentional hand movements through point where bat rolls out of hitting configuration

  • Swing time too long; athlete must commit too early in order to hit pitch on time without rushing bat through zone; athlete has too little time available to evaluate pitch.

  • Effective drills could cut effective swing time, perhaps to .012 sec to .0145 sec, resulting in more pitch evaluation time as well as more power through increase batspeed

  • Effective drills could result in more frequent leveraged initial bat acceleration by pulling knob of bat in more leveraged pursuit curve (more shallow curve)

  • Effective drills could cut length in rear of swing by establishing new muscle memory & elimination of initial casting movement

Athlete strides at various times, frequently too late to get front foot down before initiating swing sequence & in rarer instances, early.
Notice timer clock.  Start with ball in hit location & back up .0155 to .0190 seconds (max swing time) or slightly more & notice when & if front side is down. See stride timing clips.

  • It is frequently not possible to time the beginning of the stride or to establish proper initial stride timing keys, when total time of shift & stride & rhythm of stride varies grossly

  • Athlete often tries to “catch up” with unleveraged top hand once he strides late & begins swing

  • Athlete often strides in such a time as to not get the front side down until the ball is .008 to .011 seconds from hit zone. Since his swing time is longer than that, he cannot hit pitches until they get too deep

  • Recommend that athlete chooses one type of shift & stride & learn to time the stride in enough time to establish workable rhythm & adequate separation time (stride first, then swing)

Athletes’ hands commonly start BEFORE front foot is down, with no effective separation in this trigger timing possible
Notice frequent lack of separation in swings, with hands frequently beginning well before front heel is down.

  • Initial pull & initial bat acceleration suffer due to lack of good base to pull from

  • Casting tendency  is a natural result of pulling before solid base established

  • Separation between stride & swing impossible to establish

  • Recommend that athlete learn separation feel through drills to establish new base stride rhythm, then learn keys to begin stride in time

Athlete does not seem to be familiar with separation, i.e.; stride before swinging or separating the trigger from the stride
Notice athlete tends to begin actual swings before front heel hits, with no separation timing or time differential possible between front side down & actual swing initiation. Stride is often not in time to provide adequate separation time as well.
See stride timing clips.

  • Establishing stride in time & then establishing separation with an adjustable front side firmup will allow hitter to pull with more power

  • Recommend athlete learn separation & an adjustable front side firmup through drills which will allow the athlete to adjust hip trigger up or down to allow for fastball hitting or adjustment for off speed or outside pitches, once he learns good stride initial timing

Athlete “arm bars” front arm frequently. Notice athletes left arm goes virtually straight very early, even in successful hit at end of 4.30.06-4 video.

  • Arm bar causes athlete to drag bat through zone with front shoulder instead of pulling powerfully with hands

  • Arm bar results in minimizing available leverage, because close limbs facilitate leverage & rapid rotation

  • Arm bar makes it impossible to get limbs close to body in a leveraged manner & makes it impossible to adjust swing angles for inside/outside pitch to properly get inside the ball the correct distance easier

  • Recommend work with weights under the hands & also work to pull & stay closed slightly longer without flying shoulder, similar to a pitcher rotating late to effect maximum power & torque

Arm bar in combination with slight casting at beginning, causes too much length in rear of swing & unleveraged acceleration;
See athletes bat paths and hand paths and compare against similar Griffey swing motion analysis views for comparison of length in rear of swing, & compare how Griffey maintains “pulling knob” with no casting on initial acceleration

  • Arm bar & forced casting does not allow athlete to maintain leverage & use his natural strength & quickness

  • Arm bar appears to add approximately .05 to .070 seconds to this athletes swing. Recommend learn new swing path by drills to establish new muscle memory. This could add significant power & fine tip bat control capabilities as well as allow more frequent sweet spot contact on inside & outside pitches

Front toe MAY be turned in slightly too much on occasion.
Front toe too closed can potentially block front hip & not allow full hip rotation & involvement

  • Front toe too closed will lock front hip slightly & inhibit natural & full, powerful hip involvement

  • Recommend athlete establish approximately a 45 degree front toe on well timed stride landing, with heel down

Athlete does not often use top hand release
Wrist roll can cut off front of swing, rolling bat out of hit configuration early

  • There is no power penalty for a well timed top hand release (at full trailing arm extension with palm up)

  • Well timed top hand release could enhance this athletes already quality flat hands position by not forcing a wrist roll at front of swing & could tend to minimize his top hand dominance early in the swing, in conjunction with good stride timing

  • Recommend athlete & coaches consider a more natural. well timed top hand release after top hand has done all the work it can, before rolling & cutting off front of swing

Athlete uses multiple stride or shift methods in different at bats, varying rhythm & timing.
See videos for lift, pre-stride, etc.

  • Varying shift & stride styles can result in altered rhythm & difficulty in establishing a good stride timing or stride keys to get front side down in time to promote a full quality swing

Athlete gets hands flat nicely when in hit zone & clearly has good hand/eye coordination
Nice swing plane when in hit zone

Athlete seems to instinctively know how to utilize front side firmup of front knee to vary hip trigger timing
Notice how athlete establishes a full front side firmup when his stride timing is in time when hitting.
Notice how athlete breaks rotation by softening front side firmup with knee when check swinging.

General Opinion:

This athlete appears to have the natural tools to be a very good hitter, probably similar in production to a Marcus Giles type hitter. Hitter has very good hands & eyes as well as natural instincts for the game. Only limitations are mechanical leverage & rhythm/timing, which can be clearly fixed through quality drills & work.

Recommendations:  I believe athlete could enhance considerable natural abilities even further if athlete could:

  • become accustomed to effective stride and timing separation

  • separate hands from stride & learn to keep hands back

  • establish a stride timing that will get his front side down in time to swing

  • establish a consistent stride which is comfortable to make it easier to learn a consistent stride timing that works well;

  • NOTE: his stride where he starts with a pre-set position & then brings the front foot in & up in a reasonable lift seems to work well for him to produce power;

  • establish effective & comfortable stride lift & beginning keys to get body started as well as get front side down in time more consistently, to be fully prepared to swing on time

  • learn to adjust for changes in pace with an adjustable front side firmup as an adjustable hip trigger, which he already uses

  • establish mush better batspeed through drills for a more leveraged hand path by habit of motion or muscle memory

Potential Improvement Areas:

  • increased batspeed
    • increased power
  • decreased swing time through decreased length in rear & increased leverage
    • increased pitch evaluation time
  • increased fine tip bat control-better hand path by habit
    • enhanced ability to get inside ball
  • better impact configurations
    • more resultant power through impact backspin
    • decreased incidence of pop ups & ground balls
  • stride in time
    • better pitch choices
    • ability to get started better on fastball
  • separation & adjustable front side firmup
    • enhanced ability to time off speed pitches
    • enhanced ability to time outside pitches or turn on inside pitches
  • more consistently effective hand path
    • enhanced general power & enhanced outside pitch power

I will  recommend specific work and drills for hitter to add needed skill sets..

This article on batspeed is why I am convinced the drills I will recommend will work: http://www.peavynet.com/newsletterdemopages/lesson3.htm
