How To Swing a Baseball Bat For Power Like Joey Votto

How To Swing a Baseball Bat For Power Like Joey Votto

 

Wanna learn How To Swing a Baseball Bat For Power Like Joey Votto ?

Well you’re in for a treat…

One of the biggest problems I had in my late teens as a ballplayer was trying to do too much at the plate.

I was trying to get my foot down in time, keep my head still, think positive thoughts, stay short to the ball and have a level swing all at the same time.

These were all things that I should be aware of when the time is right, but trying to do them all within one at-bat is insanity.

As hitters we have to be willing to focus on the ONE thing that if did successfully would make all the other things trivial.

The one element in our swing, approach and training that will provide us with most of the offensive results that we desire.

A great place to start is by trusting your abilities and pursuing a more “quite approach”.

In this AoB swing analysis video, I’ll share with you a few aspects of Joe Votto’s swing that really impresses me.

Joey is a bigger guy but swings like a hybrid of a line-drive hitter and a power guy.

He’s a great hitter to learn from especially for you lefty hitters!

I hope you enjoy this video!

Who’s should we do next?

Let me know who’s swing you’d like to see in the next swing analysis video and I’ll be sure to put it in the que.

Cheers guys!

The power of the Pro Batter w/ Adam Battersby

 

Many thanks to Adam Battersby for coming on the show to talk about the birth of the Pro Batter and how it’s been helping hitter at all levels of baseball perform better by simulating game like situations.

I have to say that I’ve been highly interested in the Pro Batter model of batting practice since I was playing baseball in high-school and I think it’s greatest strength is in allowing hitters to experience advanced level pitching without playing at an advanced level.

This is key for all hitters.

In this interview Adam introduces the basic concept of Pro Batter, it’s vision for the future as well as how you can take batting practice at a facility near you!

Enjoy the interview with Adam!

Increasing Bat-Speed While Hitting The Curve-Ball Like Bryce Harper

ncreasing bat speed while hitting the curve ball

 

Here is the truth. I’ll venture to say that 90% of breaking balls that you guys strike-out on are pitches in the dirt.

RIGHT?

Why is that?

Because you haven’t established the discipline of “posting up”. That’s why.

You have to force the pitcher to leave the breaking ball up in the zone.

Period.

If you can do that, you’ll have a chance to be known as a great breaking ball hitter.

In this video I’ll be breaking down Bryce Harper’s swing on  a curve-ball that was left ” up enough” in the zone for him to tattoo it over the center field fence.

You gotta watch this swing!

Enjoy!

Who’s your favorite hitter?

Let me know who your favorite hitter is in the comment section below and I’ll make sure to use him(or her) in one of our AoB swing analysis videos.
