The ability for an athlete to rotate in proper kinematic sequence allows for maximum speed gain throughout rotation. The first step in this sequence is proper hip shoulder separation. Oftentimes in rotation, the first mistake is the worst mistake. Learning to properly disassociate pelvic rotation from shoulder rotation is key in creating bat speed.
Eric Tyler explains how shifting your contact point can help you hit more line drives, without changing your mechanics!
Players make adjustments in many ways. Some adjustments are slow and take more time (season to season). Others are faster like a game to game or at bat to at bat adjustment. The Fastest adjustments, pitch to pitch adjustments, can ONLY be made if the adjustment has been practiced and planned for. In the instance of the McGregor vs Porier, Connor planned for the takedown attempts and clinch game of Porier.
Many coaches at all levels tell their hitters to ‘line up their door knocking knuckles’. This is not only incorrect, but it puts many players in an extremely weak position when attempting to turn the bat into the hitting zone… The Box Grip, where you line up the knockers with the punching knuckles is what we have taught for years. And while more more correct and widely used in the mlb, there may be a better way.
