MOI or Moment of Inertia: What Is It?

Posted by AxeBat US Admin on

The prevalence of the term “MOI”, an abbreviation for “Moment of Inertia”, has become much more prevalent in today’s world of baseball and golf specifically. But what exactly does this term mean, and how does it relate to your baseball bat?

MOI is an engineering metric used to quantify the rotational inertia of an object – or the object’s tendency to resist angular rotation.  In this sense, it is similar to the concept of torque, and is measured in respect to a single “pivot” point.  In the case of bats, the pivot point is the hitter’s hands, and thus, all MOI measurements are calculated from a single point (6.0” from the tip of the knob) that approximates the central axis of an average hitter’s hands during the swing.

Why a Hybrid Model is Best for USA Baseball

Posted by AxeBat US Admin on

The Avenge Pro Hybrid features many of the same benefits of a typical two-piece composite bat oft-seen around USA Baseball games, most importantly: Axe Bat’s shock suspension connection, but combines those features with a barrel tuned to perform to the true peak value of the USA-Bat legal limit, as is seen in the lab performance comparison below, measured via the Axe Performance lab. Further description of such charts can be found in our previous blog.
