Blast’s Connection score links together what your body and your bat are doing prior to and at the point of contact. It uses Early Connection and Connection at Impact metrics as the basis for your score. Maintaining good connection at impact (90 degrees) for all pitch locations is an indicator of dynamic adjustability. According to Blast, players with good Connection score:
- Display better swing adjustability in all pitch locations
- Have better plate coverage
- Generate more power to all parts of the field
There are variety of potential physical impediments that could lead to an undesirable Connection score, with Early Connection having slightly different potential set of issues that Connection at Impact.
