Welcome to this week’s installment “From the Dugout” which takes a dive into understanding the optimal bat/ball impact location known as the “sweet spot”.
At Leadbury we are extremely dedicated to growing our own understanding of baseball bat mechanics and helping transfer that knowledge to our customers.

However, Mitchell Godkin has experienced a wonderful synchronicity of skill sets that developed into an opportunity to create a new kind of baseball bat that in his testing so far, offers more strength and flex than traditional bats.
