There are pros and cons to the launch angle. It’s as simple as sometimes you benefit from having a 4 degree angle and sometimes you benefit from having a 25+ degree angle. The “sometimes” is the ability of the hitter to adjust to pitch location without pre-setting his angle pre-swing. You must be fluid like water with that barrel control. I made this last night after watching notorious high launch angle hitter Justin Turner go 0-4 with 4 K’s. This was his last at-bat with the pitcher executing his pitches perfectly to offset Turners ability to get on plane up in the zone. .

A lot of ego-driven hitters believe that they can pick up a ball and follow it from release point to contact. In a matter of a about 150 milliseconds or literally “a blink of an eye”. Ok 🙄. YES, early recognition is very important but from that point on what transpires for the elite is their ability to get their barrel to where they believe the ball to be going —— not where it’s at at a particular point. It’s trust. Its reaction. It’s barrel control. It’s valuing experience and your ability to process. It’s not where your at but where your going. Where do you want to go? .

I. Love. Vegas... in the Fall. Do y’all even know how nice 98 degrees feels with 5% humidity? I put a bat in my hands. That’s how nice. .

Everybody’s different. There is no “way”. If ur teaching a “way” ur a sucker and ur doing more harm than good. Hitting IS a learned activity BUT it’s first an individual activity and to some it’s a FEEL activity. If your gonna teach someone how to “feel” than it’s gonna end badly. The feel is figured out by the hitter. Yes, mechanical adjustments are necessary but to be a great coach you have to communicate & guide hitters with feel-based adjustments as well. It takes a lot of time, understanding, and EMPATHY for everyone involved, especially the coach. If you don’t have empathy as a coach than u don’t understand hitting and how hard it is. @benzobrist18 and @hunterpence have made $212 million dollars in their careers and own 4 World Series rings! Their set-ups and swings aren’t pretty or traditional but they FEEL it, they own it, and of course they have tremendous barrel control. Empathy + knowledge + experience = Wisdom !!! -CAP #respect .

I’m OBSESSED with barrel control. Here’s probably the two best hitters in the world right now. Notice anything about the pitches they are swinging at? They are “balls” ! At best very edgy off the k-zone. If u want to be an elite hitter u gotta have “edgy barrel control” bruh ⚡️💥⚡️!!!! Not trying to be the best at hitting mistakes man, that’s not elite. Average to below average hitters hit mistakes on the reg. The elite get EDGY with that B-Control. Big League pitchers live on the edge. Hitters need to be constantly training on this. Trust ur pitch selection but be edgy dammit! Get some of that quality O-Contact% in yo life. You know I’m comin’ at ya with only the best info- CAP .
