Drive Balls Into The Gap w/ a Post-Stride Like Prince Fielder

 

If there was one mechanical hitting tip that you could take from Detroit slugger Prince Fielder it should be this.

You can develop incredible momentum and torque with your swing by knowing how to effectively shift your weight before you initiate your swing.

Prince Fielder is a BIG boy and he knows how to use his weight to his advantage.

He uses a “pre-stride” and sometimes a simple “toe-tap” w/ his swing when his timing is slitghtly off, to develop a large amount of bat-speed.

Does it matter how big you are? Nope skinny hitter’s alike can use this approach to hitting the ball with a little more pop.

Watch this video then first then have fun driving balls into the gap with more consistency as you begin to apply this Prince Fielder hitting approach.

How to MASH the ball w/ An Old School Swing Like Anthony Rizzo

 

There is something about an old school swing that seriously sparks my curiosity. First off, it’s so different than the conventional swings of today. There is very little movement and doesn’t exactly reflect and athletic position or at-least what we would consider an athletic position nowadays.

But for from around the 30’s all the way to the last 50’s and early 60’s, hitter’s seemed to hit in this way.

Hands low. Feet square or closed off. A simple stride to the pitcher.

No leg-kick. No bat-wiggle. No nothing. Their swing was short and sweet.

This is why I LOVE Anthony Rizzo’s swing. It’s old-school. It kinda reminds me of Ted William’s swing without the slight hitch.

In this video you’ll learn a thing or two about where Rizzo is generating his bat-speed and how you can do the same.

Do me a favor and let me know what you liked most about the video as well as who you’d like to see next in the “How to hit a baseball” video series.

How To Swing The Bat w/ Pure Instinct Like Bo Jackson

 

There are handful of players that I would give almost anything to see compete on the ball field.

Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Hank Aaron, Ty Cobb, Joe DiMaggio…

…and Bo Jackson.

Has there been anyone who demonstrated more power, explosion and natural athletic ability than Bo Jackson?

I can’t think of one ballplayer. The irony of it all was that his career was cut extremely short by an injury that was a result of his incredible power. A freak accident involving his hip flexor.

Talk about a fallen hero.

With that being said, I was contacted by an Art of Baseball fan ( Jeremy) who wanted to see a “How to hit a baseball” video with Bo Jackson.

This one is for you Jeremy 🙂

Who is one player, dead or alive that you’d love to watch play?
