I see so many young hitters struggle for one simple reason.
They’ve never been taught the proper fundamentals of the elite level swing.
They grow up constantly hearing coaches tell them to “swing down,” which more often than not creates a steep, choppy swing that actually pulls the barrel out of the hitting zone.
Can that type of a swing work?
But when they are challenged with facing better pitching than they are used to their results usually go down the toilet.
Steep swings leave hits on the table.
When hitters focus too much on swinging down on the baseball then they will have a steeper swing.
A steeper swing means that the barrel will spend less time in the hitting zone making it more difficult to consistently hit the baseball square on the barrel.
In the ABC’s of The 5 Tool Hitter Program I show you my top 11 mechanics & hitting drills I use to teach hitters how to create a flat swing plate that keeps the barrel in the hitting zone for a long, long time.
