Achieving Greatness At The Plate Like Josh Donaldson

 

Finally got some rain this weekend. It get’s pretty dry here in Southern California. I’m from Florida so I’m used to a little drizzle here and there.

I have a new video w/ Josh Donaldson that I think you’d like.

Josh and I are from the same home-town and actually grew up playing ball together and against each other.

He was one of the MOST talented players I’ve ever played with.

The CRAZIEST also.

I remember this one time when we were around eleven or twelve. We were in a tournament in Louisiana. It was close to midnight. All the players and their parents were asleep expect for Josh of course.

I hear a KNOCK KNOCK at my door, and then next thing I know he had convinced my mom to allow me to go down to the indoor pool for a swim. It was me Josh and a pitcher named Bobby who was a VERY talented pitcher who ended up with the Angels.

One of the BEST memories I have of playing travel ball.

I remember a very important piece of advice Josh gave to me as an eleven year old to a fellow eleven year old.

“Never eat salty peanuts if you have chapped lips.”

That’s a whole other story.

Josh is a great player that you should all watch closely.

He plays this game with a level on intensity that is very rare. He plays for all he right reasons and I’m grateful to say I got to witness what it was like watching him develop.

Watch me give a short swing analysis of Josh Donaldson’s swing and learn more about what makes him such a great player.

The Secret to Derek Jeter’s 18 + Years of Success At The Plate.

The Secret to Derek Jeter’s 18 + Years of Success At The Plate.

 

One of the things I feel the most grateful about is having the opportunity to give baseball advice to not only the local little leagues in my area but to have a stage to reach thousands upon thousands of baseball parents, players and coaches around the world with the Art of Baseball website.

Just the other day, I received an email from an aspiring player in France.

I didn’t even know they played baseball there!

Anyhoo…suffice to say that I don’t take this opportunity lightly. If I’m being given the opportunity to have an impact on countless baseball careers Bye George I’m gonna give it all I got.

When it comes to sharing helpful baseball advice I like to use examples as well as telling a story.

In this video I wan’t to share with you something that I feel will serve you during the upcoming baseball season.

There is a reason why Derek Jeter has been as successful at the plate as he has over the past 18 years.

In this video I’ll share what is responsible for most of his mechanical consistency as well as a story that paint’s a picture of the value of having “High Character” while trying to hit a high velocity fast-ball for a living.

Enjoy!

Don’t forget to tell me who’s swing you’d like to see in the next video.

Kevin Paxson & Bat-Speed w/ The PaxBats!

 

So I walk into the hitting facility to start my hitting lessons for the day and not an hour goes by before I hear, ” hey what is that? It looks pretty cool”. They’re talking about the PaxBat. I use it for all my lessons.

As you know, I’m a huge advocate of getting your “required reps” in the batting cage. The hitting cage is the hitter’s laboratory, where he can experiment with new things to find what does and does not work. I’m a fan of the PaxBat because it provides immediate feedback. It save you time.  If you’re not crushing the ball, there is probably something wrong with your swing path and or approach to the plate. Easy Peasy.

All this being said, I’m really excited to have the creator of the PaxBats (Kevin Paxson) on the AoB EXPERTS show today to share how he got the idea for the design, how to best utilize it for increased bat-speed and what results to expect if you stick with it for a committed period of time. It’s not a magic pill…but it will be a welcomed tool in your tool-box if you allow it to be.

Many thanks to Kevin Paxson for sharing his time! He’s a high-school coach and has a family so much obliged Kevin. You’re the man.
