5 Steps to A Sweet Swing
By following these five important steps, your swing will improve immensely.
1. Start In The Launch Position
Here’s Ken Griffey Junior demonstrating the launch position.
- Right arm comes across his chest
- Stretching the big banded muscles of the upper torso
- Bat in a 45 degree angle
- Highly recommended setup position
- Start with your weigh back
2. Trigger your Weight Back
Alex Rodriguez slightly taking his front knee inward towards his back side.
Lots of other PROs are using the same technique. Manny Ramirez would be one of the PRO hitters which highlights this trick during the game, raising his front leg high.
3. Stay Inside the Ball
Here’s the big hurt (Frank Thomas) rotating off the back side as he pulls the knob and stays inside the ball.
Observe Ken Griffey Jr. during live games applying the same procedures.
4. Maintain Flat Hands
Here’s a perfect example of Big Mac keeping his top hand underneath;
He extends through the ball maintaining flat hands;
Great discipline with his head tracking the incoming pitch.
5. Extend the Lead Arm
