Great hitters study their swings. Be proactive with your own development! Compare yourself to the best. How do you compare? Dig in!

Jose Bautista Slow Motion Swing

Published on Jul 24, 2013

Running Time: 52 seconds

Check out Jose's stride and load in this video. Specifically, notice his body position as his stride foot hits the ground. We call this striding to balance or the 'K' position. Whether you have a big stride and load like Bautista, or you just pick your foot up and put it down, we want to land in a balanced position. Not sure if your stride and load is balanced? Check out where your head is positioned when your stride foot lands. Also, notice Jose's bat angle when his front foot lands. Does your bat angle look like this?

Miguel Cabrera 1000 FPS Slow Motion HR Swing

Published on Jul 8, 2013

Running Time: 27 seconds

We all know Miggy is one of the best hitters in the game. But what makes him so great? In this video, I want you to follow Miggy's chin, noes, and eyes as the ball approaches the hitting zone. Keeping your head down at contact will allow your hands to take the barrel to the hitting zone more consistantly. Pulling your head, even a little bit, can pull your barrel out of the hitting zone will result in less consistant contact points.
