There has been a revolution in swing mechanics. Players are utilizing technology to measure launch angle and exit velocity and are training smarter and more intensely. They are rejecting the old maxims of "swing down to contact" and are now utilizing an "elevate to celebrate" approach.

There are more pitchers throwing 95 mph+ fastballs, less crafty pitchers using deception and movement.

Both of those factors are part of the increased HR rate. There may be other factors that we don't know about, but those are the known knowns


I agree with this. I've heard of lots of players working in the offseason to improve launch angle and spin rates. It reminds me of the 90s when all the players were flocking to creatine and gaining 20lbs in an offseason

It could be any of these reasons. Likely a combination of a few together. Imo, steroids or HGH could still be 1 of the main factors. Bat speed, along with swing trajectory, is a key factor with hitting HR's. The stronger a player is, and with a mechanically sound compact swing, will hit the ball GREAT distances!!!! Also, the faster a pitcher throws the ball, the further it will fly when it's squared up on the bats sweet spot.
