Abstract


INTRODUCTION: Increasing bat velocity and accurately hitting the baseball are important for increasing hit ball velocity. Although there are studies on motion for increasing bat velocity, few studies discussed hitting accuracy in actual baseball batting. Therefore, the aim of this study was to analyze the strategies of upper limbs motion for accurately hitting the ball at different conditions of ball speed.
