I’ve always been amazed as to how Jackie Robinson was able to perform the way he did in a culture that provided very little support for his presence.
It took an unimaginable amount of courage and self-discipline to be successful at the plate while withstanding the bigotry and racism that he experienced.
He was a true model.
An now a movie that will be telling his story and sharing his message will be put on the big screen!
So with that in mind I decided to do another “How to Hit a baseball” video with Jackie Robinson.
In this youtube hitting tips video I’ll be sharing my take on why Jackie was able to hit over .300 while playing with reckless abandon and poise!
Take a look!
