Troy Tulowitzki shows off AMAZING “oppo” power!

Troy Tulowitzki shows off AMAZING "oppo" power!

 

One of the things you should know about me is that I’m OBSESSED with teaching hitters how to master the art of hitting the ball the other way.

Why?

Because it refines their swing and allows them to adapt quickly to a higher level of pitching.

The principles that allow players to understand how to do so is simple enough but approach to apply those principles will differ from hitter to hitter in certain cases.

One great way however is to watch and understand how and why big leaguers are able to demonstrate those hitting principles on a daily basis while making it look relatively easy. Even though we all know it’s not.

In this “Swing analysis break down” video w/ Troy Tulowitzki, I’ll shed some light as to one thing I recommend that you observe in his approach at the plate that allows him to hit “pitcher’s pitches” like  it was in a “hitter’s count”.

Tulo is one of the BEST players in baseball right now, so you would do well to take note on his rhyme and reason for playing the GREATEST game ever invented.

Enjoy enjoy!

What do you think of Troy Tulowitzki’s Swing?

It’s not everyday that you see a defensive short-stop who is able to do what Tulo does at the plate while playing solid defense. I can only think of a hand full of players. Derek Jeter, Barry Larkin, Cal Ripkin, Alex Rodrizuez*, Miguel Tejada, Nomar Garciaparra.

It’s fun watching players like this because they only come one or twice or in this case, five times in a generation. It’s truly rare.

Who were some defensive short-stops that could swing the stick, that you enjoyed watching play at the major league level? Share your thoughts below.

Steal David Ortiz’s Balance, Rhythm and Power!

Steal David Ortiz's Balance, Rhythm and Power!

 

BIG PAPI can hit. We all know this. But did you know that he also shares a VERY similar characteristic in his approach to hitting with many Japanese born ballplayers?

My theory is that both of their approaches to developing INCREDIBLE bat-speed at the plate starts from the ground up.

Balance and Rhythm!

That’s what I’m gonna be talking about today in this super short video as poart of the Art of Baseball Productions Swing Analysis Series.

What’s your baseball destiny? Keep your head up and dream BIG!

 

What’s your baseball DESTINY?

That’s a hard question to answer if you don’t have a specific reason why you play the game of baseball.

Sure it’ll be different from for everyone but what is it?

To become a leader? To overcome your fears? To make friends and impress people?

For the challenge?

We alllllll have a destiny. For some it involves teaching (like myself). For others it’s to play in the BIG LEAGUES, break records and achieve fame and fortune.

Whatever the destiny – the purpose of it all lies within, I think you would agree.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on what you think your MAIN purpose is as a ballplayer as well as what you think your destiny in when you put on that uniform and step out on that field.

The reason why I ask these question is because knowing the answer will better equip you in establishing a positive attitude which as you know comes at a premium for ballplayers.

It will help you to be able to keep your head up and DREAM BIG!!

What are your thoughts?

Why do I love working with young ballplayers?

Because I get to have a positive influences on them…

…and if there even a little receptive to the advice I share – and pay attention to my demonstrations, most players see results pretty quickly.

It has nothing to do with my ability as a private hitting instructor but more to do with the incredible impressionability that young players have…naturally.

Young ballplayers are like sponges – ready to take in the data that he/she sees in their immediate environment.
