How to be a “well rounded” hitter. [Derek Jeter Style]

 

So a player and his dad came up to me the other day. The father expressed his present concern about his son’s hitting ability.

“How can I help my son to be a well rounded hitter”?

Suffice to say I’m surrounded by many other parents and players that share the same sentiment.

Becoming a great well rounded hitter begins with understanding the psychology and basic principles of doing so.

You have to access what your strengths and weakness are. You have to know what each game situations is calling for and so on.

The game situation will always dictate the approach.

With that being said, here is what I told him.

” You have to be willing to except that becoming a well rounded hitter first begins with taking the first step in doing so. Commit to becoming one and the obstacles and challenges will arrive to help you get there”.

“The obstacles to becoming a good hitter is the way to becoming a good hitter”

Let’s break down a PERFECT example of what a good hitter does in a particular situation like this.

I hope you enjoy this video.

Create a Lumber Jack Swing Like Evan Gattis!

Create a lumber jack swing like Evan Gattis

 

You gotta love a good under dog story. Have you ever heard Evan Gattis’ story? You can’t make this up. Before becoming a big leaguer he was a janitor, ski lift operator and worked at a pizza parlor before hitting massive home-runs in the big leagues.

Evan Gattis is a PERFECT example of a player who knows how to use his entire body to initiate bat-speed and a solid foundation at point of contact.

In this video I’ll break down exactly what he does in his approach that has pitchers sweating bullets as he walks up to the plate.

I hope this addition to the how to hit a baseball series helps you in becoming an overall better ball player.

What are your thoughts?

What do you think of Gattis’ swing? What kind of hitting approach do you have at the plate? I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you’re doing to become a better hitter.

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.
