Baseball Rebellion Swing Breakdown:

Andrew McCutchen

This Baseball Rebellion Swing Breakdown features Andrew McCutchen. McCutchen is a model of consistency as a hitter. He has had 20 homers or more in each of his last 6 seasons. Last year was a down year for McCutchen in terms of what he has typically done in his career offensively, but he was still productive. I wanted to break down McCutchen’s hitting mechanics because he is a very efficient mover in his swing. He doesn’t have a huge barrel tip or a huge leg kick, but he moves very efficiently through his pattern. He’s listed at 5’10 195 pounds, and to have that small of a frame and put up the offensive statistics McCutchen has produced, there has to be very good movements in his swing. In this swing breakdown, I’m going to highlight these movements and explain why they are important to have in your swing.

    What’s a good drill for driving the heel into the ground, because I’m always driving into my front toe?
