Highlight of the day was seeing Turner Ward again before the game and him waving back at us. Then coming over and talking with us for a while! #springtraining2018 #highlights
Our players enjoying hitting off our new toy!!
I like this drill that @rileysartain
is doing. I’ve used it before and i get it. What about you?
This is an Oldie but Goodie drill 🤗
I use this drill to 1) exaggerate my lower half drive and 2) to check if my hands are staying connected/inside the ball
Position yourself closed off at about 45 degrees. Allow your legs to initiate your swing and finish like you would in a regular swing with your hips facing the pitcher.
You can do this one off a tee or front toss. Aim for line drives to the back of the cage. If you start rolling over or hitting flares to the opposite field you'll know your hands aren't staying connected/inside the ball or you aren't driving hard enough with your lower half.
People always ask me why I hit with a wood bat so nowwww the answer you've allllll been waiting forrrr:
1) I like swinging a heavier bat to strengthen my forearms and
2) switching between different bats with different weights forces me to be aware of my sweet spot through the hitting zone

Arm health should come first. The focus needs to be more on number of pitches thrown and less on innings.
Between warm ups and in between innings, it’s a lot more than 25 and these pitches add up.
There’s no need to put this unneeded stress on the arm, especially during development. •

“Get off me ball”-Puig, here, probably. Protraction of the scap during the swing. “Get your backside through”, “complete your turn”, “top hand” idc, don’t leave any juice in the tank. #hitting #mlb #swings #dodgers
