There are two ways that I help players make the adjustment to higher velocity fast-balls.

1. Start the “back weight transition” earlier.
2. Get the foot down sooner.

It really is that simple. The hard part is finding interesting and effective ways of conditioning this idea into a swing that is responsive to the adjustment.

Especially if you have what I call a “Swing Virus”.

Like I’ve said before, you can learn best by modeling others and their success.

This swing analysis involves Victor Martinez and his approach to hitting higher velocity.

It’s actually a hybrid of the two principles in the form of a “Toe Tap”.

I’ll explain exactly what it is and how to implement it into your approach at the plat in this swing analysis video.
