How To Dominate Fast-Balls Like Mookie Betts.

One of the most important principles a young hitter could understand is the idea of an aggressive mind-set at the plate.

Really what it comes down to is the level of expectations the hitter as before each pitch.

Expecting that they’re going to hit the ball hard. Not hoping.

Expecting that the next pitch i going to  be a strike and a pitch they can handle. Not waiting to see if it’s a strike. Assuming it will be a strike instead.

Expectations is key.

Which is why I try to communicate to my players that if they want to develop their skill-sets, they need to increase their standards.

What do they consider a Quality At-Bat. How much effort are they willing to give during each batting practice session, and so on.

With that in mind, a great place to start is to critique Mookie Betts’ swing, level of aggressiveness and see if there is anything that we can draw upon to get similar results.

Hope this helps.

Bryce Harper Hitting Secret: How To Hit 500 foot + Home-Runs Like Bryce Harper

One of the things I try to stress to my young hitters is understanding how to use your entire body in your swing.

I quite often see hitters take for granted how much more than actually have in their “Bat Speed” tank if you will.

I believe without a doubt that they can hit the ball a lot harder and farther than they give themselves credit for.

Now, obviously the only way a hitter is able to truly maximize his ability to generate torque in his swing is through proper strength training, correct repetitions and a basic understanding of the biomechanics of a swing but it will behoove the hitter not to take what he’s already capable of doing for granted.

Woooh. Long sentence, I know!

My mentor once told me that hitting is a “Controlled / Violent act”. Which is why encourage my hitters that I train privately to swing as hard as they can, under control.

Who’s a good example that demonstrates this? You guessed it. Bryce Harper.

This is the 3rd time I’ve done a Bryce Harper swing analysis as part of the AoB Swing Analysis Series and theres a reason why. He’s the real deal.

Look at his approach and see what you can learn from his swing, point of contact stance and overall balance after point of contact. There’s a hidden message here and if you can learn to recognize it, it will be just another advantage for you during your progress as a ballplayer!

Good luck!

Play The Game With Reckless Abandon Like Hunter Pence

Play The Game With Reckless Abandon Like Hunter Pence

 

Have you ever heard the saying that “the guy on top of the mountain didn’t fall there”?

It paints an accurate picture of a truth about hitting that has stood the test of time.

To be the best, to be on top, takes a strategy and the courage to journey and overcome challenges that guide you to where you want to be.

Being a hitter is a journey.

Becoming a good hitter is an adventure that takes time and sacrifice.

This is one of the many lessons I strive to impart on the hitters I work with everyday.

Another one is the ability to stand in the batter’s box while feeling and being un-stifled.

To be free. To play this game with a certain level of trust that allows us to tap into our true potential. When we are hesitant, stuck in our head, we become victims of “paralysis by analysis”. It happens to the best of us.

In this swing analysis video, I’ll break down Hunter Pence and how he plays the game with this level of certainty because isn’t that what we want?

We play this game to achieve certainty. Certain that we are capable. Certain that we can perform and live up to societal expectations. This can be a good and bad thing but we’ll save that topic for another day.

Watch this video with Hunter Pence & leave a comment to tell me how you are going to play this game more freely. I want to hear your thoughts.

Enjoy!
