When you first walk into Elite Diamond Performance, you are immediately met with screens flashing numbers, charts and graphs. We make no secret that we believe highly in measuring every swing that is taken in the facility to ensure that hitters are improving. One such metric that gets measured is exit velocity. While there is still a ton of debate around the term (not sure why, but this article can hopefully clear up any confusion regarding the topic), I want to discuss the differences in max exit velocity vs. hard hit average (consistency).
