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.

How to Hit Effectively With the Bases Loaded!

 

Down by one run…

Tying run is on third. Winning run is on second.

It’s the championship game. The pitcher is dirty. He has an un-hittable 2 seamer and a decent fast-ball sitting around 91 mph.

He struck you out looking in your last at-bat. What adjustment would you make?

This was my EXACT situation in this conference series.

Did I pull through?

Did I help my team win?

Was I the hero?

Watch the video to find out how to learn how to hit effectively with the bases loaded.
