Baseball bat perspective

Last Thursday I was out at the College Home Run Derby to make photos and video with my good friend and photographer Rodney Green. I had this idea a few days before the event to mount a GoPro camera on the end of the bat looking down the bat. I spent one night building it with another friend Steve Houlton and did a quick test. Everything looked great in the test (except my swing) so off I went. During batting practice I grabbed last years winner, Rice's Michael Aquino to take a couple of swings. Overall I think it went pretty well (other than my pitching) and Aquino was great. But I already have some ideas to improve my bat rig for next time. Here’s what the bat looked like as well as my test video and final video, enjoy!
