So you think you can swing a bat pretty fast, huh? Do you exceed the average swing speed of your age group? Come see for yourself at Better Baseball’s First Annual Swing Speed Challenge on Friday, May 22nd to Sunday, May 24th at both the Marietta and Chamblee Locations. Using a Swing Speed Radar, a Zepp Sensor, and a HitTrax Batting Simulator (Marietta only), we will analyze players’ swings and determine who has the fastest bat speed of their age group. The competition will be broken down into 5 age groups for the boys and 5 age groups for the girls. The top three performers from each age group will earn a prize as well as a photo posted on Better Baseball’s social media outlets! So get ready to step in to the box and swing out of your shoes. The challenge is on!

4-7yrs, 8-10yrs, 11-13yrs, 14-16yrs, 17 & up. a total of 10 groups
Each participant gets 3 swings, and their top swing speed counts for their total Score. They are allowed warmup swings, but must swing a bat that is legal for their age group.
i.e Billy is in High school and must swing a -3 BBCOR. Timmy is 12 yrs old and can either swing a -10 senior league bat or a legal small barrel bat
