  • Who's Swing Should Youngster's Be Studying?

    If you had to pick one CURRENT MLB hitter... Who's swing would you choose to have your son/ daughter study and/or try and emulate?

      I assume you are referring to "Big Papi" Ortiz?

        Albert Pujols.

          I would want a younger hitter looking at someone with a more contact swing rather than power. Someone who doesn't hack at bad pitches, is patient at the plate, and rarely strikes out. The winner...

            Pujols.

            A-Rod, close second.

            Jeter, distant third.

              What do people think about Matt Holliday, Miguel Cabrera, or Adrian Gonzalez?

                J.D. Drew. I've never seen him "overswing" and he has a pretty basic, natural movement through the hitting zone. Actually seeing him play, rather than populating the DL would be a challenge, however.

                  Despite his nice swing, I'm loath to tell anyone to copy JD Drew out of fear that they would also pick up his "toughness" and attitude.

                          That's not a terrible swing, but he really shouldn't be swinging at that particular ball.

                            I think his swing is pretty simple and very consistent. He stays connected which when taught to children is pretty repeatable.

                              Steroids or not Barry has the best swing in our modern day. No one comes close. Pujols, Vlady i love, but size is helping them a lot. Barry simply is perfect.
