SWIPE LEFT! 👈🏽👈🏽⬅️⬅️
Here are a few ELITE hitters. (Machado, Griffey, Hanmerin Hank, Pedroia & Nelly Cruz)
All in a very similar “power position” or “launch position” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is the point in the swing that the front heel plants the ground. These elite hitter are all unique in their stance and in their stride (toe tap, leg kick, knee tucks, stride) but there is no denying the similarities once they all have arrived at the “proper launch position”
Knob of bat maintains approximately a 45-60 degree angle between the bat and ground (Knob pointed towards catcher, Barrel over the helmet)
Back shoulder remains higher than the front shoulder; front arm remains angled at approximately 110 degrees.
Hips slide forward toward the pitcher, without opening; front knee begins to bend, absorbing the hitter’s weight as it begins to shift forward. Head remains steady, not moving toward the pitcher, even as the hips shift forward
