Montoya, BS, Brown, LE, Coburn, JW, and Zinder, SM. Effect of warm-up with different weighted bats on normal baseball bat velocity. J Strength Cond Res 23(5): 1566-1569, 2009-Traditionally, baseball players have used a heavy bat for warm-up before competition. Because bat velocity is an essential component to hitting a baseball, and because players warm up differently, there is a need to investigate the best way to maximize post warm-up bat velocity. The purpose of this study was to determine…

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.
The Effects of Various Warm-Up Devices on Baseball Bat Velocity in Collegiate Baseball Players: A Pilot Study
TLDR
Based upon no changes in the dependent variable in the population tested, Division II collegiate athletes can choose any of the warm-up devices investigated because no deleterious effects were observed.
Effects of Various Warm-Up Devices and Rest Period Lengths on Batting Velocity and Acceleration of Intercollegiate Baseball Players
TLDR
The peak bat velocity of 16 National Collegiate Athletic Association Division II intercollegiate baseball players at 1, 2, 4, and 8 minutes, after warming up with bats of 5 different weights was tested and suggested that pitchers should throw their fastest pitch near the beginning of the at-bat to correspond with the potentially slower bat speeds of the batter.
Effect of Various Warm-Up Devices on Bat Velocity of Intercollegiate Softball Players
TLDR
It is suggested that female intercollegiate softball players warm up with the popular commercial donut ring in the on-deck circle because it produced the slowest BV, but similar to in other previous baseball research, it is not recommended.
ect of on-deck warm-up routines in baseball on bat velocity , muscular activity and intensity in time-frequency space
The purpose of this study was to determine how using warm-up implements of different weight affects post warm-up baseball bat velocity. Furthermore muscular timing (on-off) and intensity in
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 effects of linear and rotational plyometric exercise on baseball bat swing velocity
Increasing baseball bat velocity is the goal of many baseball strength and conditioning programs, as fast bat velocity is essential for successfully hitting a baseball. Despite the desire to increase
No Effect of Assisted Hip Rotation on Bat Velocity
TLDR
Using the concept of overspeed training with assisted hip rotation up to 30% BWA did not result in an increase in bat velocity, and future research should examine elastic band angle and hip translation at set-up.
COMPARISON OF LINEAR AND ANGULAR SWING VELOCITIES WITH DIFFERENTLY WEIGHTED WARM-UP BATS IN SOFTBALL PLAYERS
Swing velocity has been considered as one of the essential factors of bat swing biomechanics, and traditionally coaches and players think it can be altered by using a differently weighted bat for

Warm-up with Baseball Bats of Varying Moments of Inertia: Effect on Bat Velocity and Swing Pattern
TLDR
Quantitative and qualitative analyses indicated that following warm-up with the weighted bat (largest moment of inertia), swing pattern was significantly altered, and postwarm-up velocity was the lowest of the three conditions.
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
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.
Effects of Weighted Bat Implement Training on Bat Swing Velocity
The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of weighted bat training on bat swing velocity. Sixty male university baseball players volunteered to participate and were randomly assigned to
Training Methods Using Various Weighted Bats and the Effects on Bat Velocity
TLDR
The evidence suggests that swinging a bat of any weight under the training program's guidelines would significantly improve bat velocity, as opposed to training with either bat alone.
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.
EFFECT OF TORSO ROTATIONAL STRENGTH ON ANGULAR HIP, ANGULAR SHOULDER, AND LINEAR BAT VELOCITIES OF HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL PLAYERS
TLDR
Performing additional rotational medicine ball exercises 2 days a week for 12 weeks statistically improves baseball performance variables, and group 2 showed greater improvements in BEV, AHV, ASV, 3RM dominant and nondominant torso rotational strength, and medicine ball hitter's throw than group 1.
EFFECT OF WRIST AND FOREARM TRAINING ON LINEAR BAT‐END,CENTER OF PERCUSSION, AND HAND VELOCITIES AND ON TIME TO BALL CONTACT OF HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL PLAYERS
TLDR
It is indicated that a 12-week stepwise periodized training program can significantly increase wrist and forearm strength, linear BV, CV, and HV among high school baseball players, however, increased wrist and arm strength did not contribute to further increases in linear Bv,CV, or HV.
Hitting a baseball: a biomechanical description.
TLDR
Three-dimensional kinematic and kinetic data are used to define and quantify biomechanics during the baseball swing and show that a hitter starts the swing with a weight shift toward the rear foot and the generation of trunk coil.
Baseball batting. An electromyographic study.
TLDR
Results show that batting is a sequence of coordinated muscle activity, beginning with the hip, followed by the trunk, and terminating with the arms, and that emphasis should be placed on the trunk and hip muscles for a batter's strengthening program.
