As it applies to OOTP, this is a good statement. Why didn't you just ask the developers this question instead of posing it as a confrontational opinion about hit velocity in the game of baseball?

I too would like to know how OOTP is calculating hit velocity and how can I use this information when evaluating a player.

In the real world, I can use hit velocity to probably predict if a player is going to get out of a bad luck streak. Can I do the same in OOTP? Can I see a rising hit velocity and accurately predict that my player might be getting out of his cold streak soon?
