Baseball Rebellion Swing Breakdown:

Aaron Judge

The New York Yankees have reloaded their system with young talent over the past few years, giving their fans ample reason to be excited. On the offensive side, Aaron Judge is one of the Yankees most promising young sluggers. Judge is a massive human being stepping into the box at 6’7, 275 lbs. and rivals Giancarlo Stanton as a physical specimen. Before watching Aaron Judge swing, I expected that his swing would be below average form a technical standpoint simply because he can afford to make more mistakes than smaller players. This expectation was false.┬áDespite being a very muscular person, Judge does not rely on his strength as the sole reason for his success. Instead it supports a very efficient swing that would work with the smallest of players. In other words, Aaron Judge’s swing is the cake while his strength may be the icing.

    What are the benefits of driving through the heel in the swing?

      Paul,

      Driving the heel vs. the toe ensures that the weight is on the back leg in the finish and that the front hip can go back in the turn.
