Szymanski, DJ, Bassett, KE, Beiser, EJ, Till, ME, Medlin, GL, Beam, JR, and Derenne, C. Effect of various warm-up devices on bat velocity of intercollegiate softball players. J Strength Cond Res 26(1): 199–205, 2012—Numerous warm-up devices are available for use by softball players while they are in the on-deck circle. It is difficult to know which warm-up device produces the greatest bat velocity (BV) in the batter's box for softball players because on-deck studies with these individuals are…

The Effects of Various Weighted Implements on Baseball Swing Kinematics in Collegiate Baseball Players
TLDR
Investigation of the effects of different warm-up (WU) devices on bat swing parameters including maximal resultant velocity (MRV), resultant velocity at ball contact (RVBC), time difference between MRV and RVBC, bat angle at MRV, bat angles at RVBC and perceptual differences of each WU implement used by National Collegiate Athletic Association Division-I baseball players found no significant differences.
The Effect of Different Warm-up Procedures on Bat Speed in Baseball
The purpose of this study was to compare the effect of a new warm-up condition, overloaded arm weights (721 g each arm, [OA]), on the bat speed during warm-up and immediately after warm-up with
Effect of a High-Intensity Isometric Potentiating Warm-up on Bat Velocity
TLDR
Results showed that maximal horizontal bat velocity was significantly enhanced 6 minutes after the isometric warm-up protocol, suggesting that in experienced female softball athletes, a specific isometricwarm-up may acutely enhance maximal horizontalBat velocity.
Evaluating the effects of under loaded and overloaded warm ups on subsequent swing velocity.
TLDR
Data bolsters the notion that warming up with a HB can hinder swing velocity, and suggests that using a PB can increase swing velocity significantly, and indicates that visual 3D can be designated as an exceptionally reliable device to measure swing velocity.
Acute Effects of a Resistance Tubing Training Device on Baseball Swing Kinematics
TLDR
The absence of a significant decrease in segmental velocities could expose a resistance tubing training device as an appropriate warm-up tool and beneficial training aid.
The Effects of Medicine Ball Training on Bat Swing Velocity in Prepubescent Softball Players
International Journal of Exercise Science 11(4): 75-83, 2018. The purpose of this study was to assess the effects of an 8-week medicine ball training program on bat swing velocity in prepubescent
The Effects of Concurrent Activation Potentiation on Bat Swing Velocity of Division II College Softball Athletes.
TLDR
Maximal jaw clenching is an effective strategy to improve BSV in division II college softball players.
The Acute Effects From the Use of Weighted Implements on Skill Enhancement in Sport: A Systematic Review
TLDR
An obvious dearth of research is identified into the acute effects of weighted implements on motor skills in other sports with equally complex perceptual motor patterns, such as football (soccer), golf, rugby, basketball, and American football.
STUDY OF BODY COMPOSITION AMONG MALE AND FEMALE SOFTBALL PLAYERS
TLDR
The results revealed that the female softball players possess higher amount of body fat as compared to their male counterparts.

Effect of Various Warm-Up Devices on Bat Velocity of Intercollegiate Baseball Players
TLDR
Results indicate that intercollegiate players can use any of the 10 warm-up devices in the on-deck circle and maintain their BV, suggesting that personal preference as to which warm- up implement to use in theon-deckcircle is advised.
Effect of Warm-up With Different Weighted Bats on Normal Baseball Bat Velocity
TLDR
It is suggested that when preparing to hit, 5 warm-up swings with either a light or normal bat will allow a player to achieve the greatest velocity of their normal bat when compared with warming up with a heavy bat after a rest period of 30 seconds.
Effect of Whole-Body Vibration Warm-Up on Bat Speed in Women Softball Players
TLDR
Results indicate that WBV warm-up may be used in place of DS to achieve similar bat speeds and future research should investigate different combinations of WBVwarm-up using various frequencies, durations, amplitudes, and rest times.
Effects of Warm Up With Various Weighted Implements On Baseball Bat Swing Velocity
The purpose of this study was to determine which of 13 weighted batting warm-up implements would produce the greatest bat velocity in subsequent trials. Sixty male high school varsity baseball
A NEW APPROACH TO BASEBALL BAT SWING WARM-UP
TLDR
It was concluded that the overweighted arm warm-up might be better than the traditional warmup routine but a short break (e.g., 3-min) is recommended to maximize the performance.
Acute Effects of Various Weighted Bat Warm-Up Protocols on Bat Velocity
TLDR
Results suggest that upper-body muscle strength influences bat velocity and it appears that the standard, light, heavy warm-up order may provide the greatest benefit to increase subsequentBat velocity and may warrant use in game situations.
The Relation Between Anthropometric and Physiological variables and Bat Velocity of High-School Baseball Players Before and After 12 Weeks of Training
TLDR
Investigation of the relation between anthropometric and physiological variables to linear bat swing velocity of high-school baseball players before and after completing a 12-week periodized resistance exercise program shows that significant relationships do exist between height, body mass, LBM,Rotational power, rotational strength, lower body power, upper and lower body strength, AHV, and ASV to linear BV of high school baseball players.
After-Effects of Using a Weighted Bat on Subsequent Swing Velocity and Batters' Perceptions of Swing Velocity and Heaviness
TLDR
Subjective judgment of the heaviness and velocity of swings for the Weighted and post-Weighted conditions by each participant showed that the ordinary bat felt lighter and swing speed felt faster for the post- Weighted condition.
EFFECT OF GRIP STRENGTH AND GRIP STRENGTHENING EXERCISES ON INSTANTANEOUS BAT VELOCITY OF COLLEGIATE BASEBALL PLAYERS
TLDR
The findings of this study suggest that grip strength and bat velocity are not significantly related, and that the allocation of time and energy for added training of the forearms in order to improve grip strength for the purpose of increasing bat velocity may not be warranted.
DOES WARMING UP WITH A WEIGHTED BAT HELP OR HURT BAT SPEED IN BASEBALL
INTRODUCTION Although baseball players may believe that by warming up with a heavy bat they will increase their swing speed, past research indicates that following warm-up with heavy bats, swing
