How to hit a baseball like Miguel Cabrera

 

Last year Miggy made baseball history.

He was the first person to win the Triple Crown since Carl Yaztremski  went on a hitting tear for the Boston Red Sox when he batted .326, hit 44 HRs, and had 121 RBIs back in the late 60’s!

THE DUDE WAS A BEAAAASST!

So how did Miggy do it?

More importantly ,” how did he make it look SO EASY?!!!!”.

Well I got your answer. He’s a master at keeping his hips, lower- half, and shoulders closed at the very last second until he explodes on the ball with incredible force.

Oh yea, and he also accomplishes this while achieving “minimal head-movement”!!!

Yes, he’s established himself as a bonafide big league hitter, but are you going to let his achievements intimidate you?

Don’t. I believe you can be just as successful as Miguel if you’re willing to apply the batting tips shared in this next video!

Watch this video and apply it in your hitting drills when you’ve mastered the concepts!

Did this video help you? Who’s swing would you like to see next?

We all know who wrote the book. (H.A Dorfman)

What about the people within the baseball community who are aspring to take the torch?

Well, we have one of those torch bearers with us today ready to share with us what it was like working closely with a mental baseball expert like H.A Dorfman.

Aaron Weintraub joins us to discuss mental toughness and the importance of having a plan when preparing to effectively apply the mental game to your baseball career.

Enjoy this interview. Aaron shares some interesting bits of baseball wisdom nuggets!

The biggest misconception is that people think you only need a mental skills coach when you have a problem. It’s really for any athlete who is not as consistent as he wan’t to be.

Dick Mills on the science of pitching w/ Art of Baseball

 

Many thanks to Dick Mills for investing his valuable time to share with us his passion for not only baseball but for teaching the art and science of pitching.

We all now that a pitching coach like Dick Mills doesn’t have time to waste on small talk so we made sure we asked him the important questions about pitching mechanics, arm strength  velocity, and who’s really getting the job done on the mound today.

I’d say 95% of the information at Art of Baseball deals with all things hitting and being a high impact player but if you happen to be both a pitcher as well as a position player I think this quick interview will help you in understanding what it will truly take to become a better pitcher.

I hope you find this interview of some value.
