If you have made it to this website, you are most likely one of four types of people:
- A player looking to improve your swing mechanics,
- A parent looking to improve your son or daughter’s swing mechanics,
- A coach or instructor looking to teach your players better swing mechanics, or
- A recruiter, scout or baseball professional looking to learn more about mechanics to help you evaluate players better.
You have probably been looking for better information about the swing for some time now. You may be frustrated with books or other products you have purchased.
Ultimately you want a process to work through. You want answers you can believe in so you can get to work.
Swing mechanics shouldn’t be so hard, but they shouldn’t be made simpler either…
Swing mechanics should be simple, but when you get beyond the cliche swing instruction things tend to get complicated.
The vast majority of all instruction out there is the same. Perhaps you’ve heard the following swing cues:
- Stay back.
- Get your foot down early.
- Get inside the ball.
- Hit the ball deep.
- Take your hands/knob to the ball.
- Squish the bug.
When coaches yell these phrases out, they are trying to help the hitter be more successful. And sometimes it does help.
But this typical instruction is robbing hitters of their athleticism and rhythm.
There’s a bigger picture of how swing mechanics impact a hitter. And my next statement cuts to the heart of the issue.
There is a fundamental flaw in the conventional wisdom of swing mechanics.
There are three basic swing pattern that exist.
- The Push Pattern (Linear.)
- The Pull Pattern. (Rotational.)
- The Elite Pattern. (What the best hitters do!)
The mechanics a hitter uses either creates a mechanical advantage or a mechanical limitation.
Things like swing shortness and quickness, how much time you have, how long your bat is in the zone, how much you can adjust, how deep you can hit the ball, etc. are all determined by what pattern you use – and the VAST majority of instruction deals with the push and pull patterns.
Have you ever considered there could be a BEST way to swing a bat?
To me, its logical to think there is a best way to swing a bat.
Its like driving different types of cars. The Honda Civic Hybrid is going to get good gas mileage, but the Ferrari is going to be insanely faster. Both cars drive but perform differently.
Now picture the Honda and Ferrari racing to determine who makes a team, who gets a college scholarship, who gets drafted or who gets promoted to the big leagues.
It becomes overwhelmingly obvious the more research you do.
The most elite hitters throughout the history of baseball (and softball) all swing using the same pattern.
The best of the best all swing the same.
They may have very different styles, but ultimately they all load and unload within the same swing pattern. They benefit from the same mechanical advantages.
And most people aren’t even aware of the fact that elite hitters swing different than anybody else. So here’s the next step…
How to get started with the learning process:
There are two ways to get started with this information.
1. Free Membership & Email Subscription
Instead of doing a blog or writing articles, I’m going to use email newsletters and a member-only blog on this site as my primary form of communication.
I have a lot of reasons for using this method, but the biggest reason is I want consistent access to you. I want to build up some trust with you and develop a relationship.
To get access, you have to give me something… and all I ask for is your contact info!
You can sign up for the member access and the newsletter using the button below.
After you create your account, you will need to sign up and confirm your subscription to the newsletter. This will prevent your email from blocking our emails as spam.
2. Get the Elite Swing Mechanics eBook + Video Instruction Series
I also have an eBook available. But this eBook will is different than just a PDF. It is like a merge between a book and a DVD.
The eBook itself is a PDF document that you will have access to after making your purchase.
It was absolutely critical for me to include video with the book, but there is no single electronic publishing format that made sense to me. So I have included a bunch of web-based content that works with the book.
To access the web-content, you log into this site and view page. The PDF has links to click whenever I wanted video to be included.
This allows me to make frequent updates to the book, to continuously add content and keep making the information better.
If you are ready to jump into the eBook, you can do that too! Click the “Buy Now” button below to get started.
Elite Swing Mechanics eBook: $49.95
I look forward to getting into the process of elite swing mechanics with you!
