Brewers Exit Velocity and Launch Angle

“We see a lot on the telecast and now on the stadiums there broadcasting that he just hit that at 102 mph, and it seems to me that that’s an impressive number on the surface, but it doesn’t give you much… All that could mean is a hard ground ball to the shortstop if the launch angle is downward or is flat.
