In 2016 and 2017, I worked with the hitters at Harris-Stowe State University, a small Historically Black College in St. Louis.
At the facility where we did our off-season workouts, we had access to a HitTrax system.
And we never used it.
Because of the importance of Swing Length, which HitTrax doesn't measure and, thus, can worsen.

Problem with HitTrax
Despite — or, I'd argue, BECAUSE of — my lack of faith in HitTrax, HSSU was one of the top offenses in all of NAIA, especially in 2017.
That wasn't a coincidence.
Much as, "Amateurs talk strategy. Professionals talk logistics," newbie hitting coaches talk Bat Speed/Exit Velocity but veterans talk Swing Length.
That's because hitting is a Drag Race.
And, in a Drag Race, Acceleration is paramount. And HitTrax doesn't measure Acceleration.
HitTrax only measures speed.
Of the ball.
Not the bat.
Or the hands.
