Hitting Mechanics Breakdown at 250 fps Hitters Power Swing
“If a hitter starts swing properly with their hips, it will set them up for more success throughout the entire swing”. It is important for a hitter to get into proper positions throughout their swing. Let’s review these essential movements:
Ø Starting from proper athletic stance with knees slightly bent and angled slightly inside the feet
Ø Load to stride, the back knee should be driving down in direction of the baseball as front heel plants into the ground
Ø Creating maximum upper and lower body separation at foot plant in order to maximize hip torque.
Ø Back hip should start swing towards baseball while transferring weight through the front foot
Ø At impact position back elbow should be in line with hips with front arm close to chest, while back knee is still down and front leg fully extended
Ø These linear to rotational forces create a strong extension to finish
