Chris Davis Baseball Success Principles: How To Take Advantage of Playing Time.

What happens when you're one of the greatest players in the game and then lose everything? What does it take to learn the ability to hit consistently for power against intimidating pitchers that can locate fastballs with the precision of an elite level sniper assassin? Where do you find the guidance and faith that empowers you to take charge of your baseball career so that you can one day contribute back to society with the baseball l[...]

Josh Donaldson Success Principles: Tricking Your Baseball Mind & Valuing Learning Over Success.

Some of you may have notice that Josh Donaldson seemingly came out of nowhere. He broke into the major leagues as a catcher for Oakland, started playing third base, got traded to the Blue-Jays and now is one of the best players on the planet. It's surreal for me because we grew up playing together. We played travel ball and competed against each other every all-star season. From a young age, it was pretty obvious that he was the RE[...]

Albert Pujols Baseball Tips: 5 Baseball Success Principles.

Let us know who you'd like to see in the next Baseball Principles Episode in the comments below. When I think about an approach to hitting that young kids would benefit from understanding, I think of Albert Pujols. His set-up is simple, he uses his lower-half better than anyone I can think apart from Bryce Harper. He's selectively aggressive and plays the game the right way. My favorite was tip #5. "All it takes is one swing to cli[...]

Success Principles With Bryce Harper: Not Giving The Pitcher Too Much Credit & Knowing Your Baseball History.

Let us know who you'd like to see in the next Baseball Principles Episode in the comments below. People say he's cocky, and he is. But so far he's been able to back it up. Bryce Harper is the real deal. We've proven it in the swing break downs and approaches in his other videos. There's a fine line between cocky and confidence and for you as a ballplayer, you're going to have to learn how to navigate that line. The ability to compe[...]

5 Derek Jeter Tips: Going Back To What Works, Team Chemistry & Recalling Past Success At The Plate.

  This is a Baseball Success Principle Video w/ Derek Jeter. Please let me know what your favorite principle was (mine was #2) and who you'd like to see next in the comment section below. I remember the first time I heard about Derek Jeter. It was around the same time I heard about Tiger Woods. I was in the 5th grade and  I had just established within my mind my love for the game. Derek Jeter had become the archetypal hero[...]

Where Should I Begin?

I get a lot of emails from baseball parents, players and coaches who say " Wow Mark, there is so much information here!

Where I should begin?!!?".

I usually respond with, "Well, it depends on what you're trying to work on"!!

If it's developing bat-speed, I suggest you watch the videos on Bryce Harper's hitting mechanics and Miguel Cabrera's approach at the plate.

If it's mental approaches to hitting and mental toughness advice that you're seeking, I usually suggest watching the interview I did with Steve Springer  or Damian Jackson as well as a video I did on "Keeping Your Head Up & Have Big Baseball Dreams."

Lastly, if your simply just trying to cut to the chase and get your hitting problems solved, I highly suggest you join the Hitting Machine Academy and really understand the process of developing bat-speed, control and overall confidence while making the game fun.

It's not as hard as you think.

For everything else hitting relates, I suggest you take a look at the free resource of hitting videos at artofbaseball.net

Founder of Art of Baseball Productions & Hitting Machine Academy

Hey there! Thanks for visiting Art of Baseball.

Years ago, I set out on a journey to help young players reach their true potential by understanding the actions, behaviors and beliefs that successful ballplayers demonstrate.

My belief is that if you can recognize what these key "baseball behaviors" are, you can expect to experience similar results.

That's where I come in.
