If you knew one thing about me it would probably be that I absolutely LOOOOVE old-school swings.
Swings like Ernie Banks, Ted Williams, Joe Dimaggio, Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays have always put me in a state of awe ever since I can remember.
Those swings are almost instinct now. Guys are bigger and stronger and seem to rely less on their core and foundation and more on their shoulders and back muscles.
I’m not saying there is anything inherently wrong with that but it’s always great to see guys like Anothony Rizzo and Matt Carpenter bring back the old-school swag of hitting.
In this AoB swing analysis, I will be discussing a few key things about Matt Carpenter that I think you guys can learn from.
He’s a “no batting gloves” kind of guy with an Eddie Murray-esque style at the plate, but watch how he attacks the fast-ball like he’s a Killer Whale hunting for seals.
It’s a controlled violent swing that get’s the job done.

P.S. Stop throwing away at-bat this season. Become a better hitter at the Hitting Machine Academy online course before the Pitcher’s Association hire more ninjas to take us out! (Just Kidding) 😉
