2017-06-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Batters (we're told) are focusing more on their batted-ball launch angles, although (we also are told) it's difficult for a hitter to exercise much control over his launch angle. Would players have an easier time controlling their launch angles if, instead of today's standard tapered wood bats, they were using bats of the same general proportions but shaped like wine bottles, with the bottle neck end serving as the handle?
(Alec Denton from Atlanta)
Inserts requisite Heinie Groh reference...Actually, for those of you who aren't into baseball history, check out this: https://sabr.org/bioproj/person/b90e80de. Groh's bat really DID look like a wine bottle. Sort of. Given that he hit a total of 26 homers over his 16-year career, I'm guessing that the bottle shape didn't help him a lot. (Yes, I know, most of his career was in the Deadball Era, but starting in the four years starting 1921, he hit 9, 3, 4, and 2 home runs over 480 games. Sticklers!) However, Alec, I'll take some issue with the premise: So far this year 45.7% of batted balls have been on the ground, the lowest proportion since 2010. Somebody's been able to move their launch angle. Though I'd agree that it's been much less of a revolution than portrayed. If you haven't done it already, check out the Ringer podcast featuring Ben Lindbergh, Michael Baumann, Rob Arthur, and Travis Sawchik on air balls. Four fantastic analysts at the top of their game; it's as much pleasure as it is education. I gotta remember to tweet that. (Rob Mains)
