Baseball Rebellion Swing Breakdown:

Brendan McKay

In this week’s breakdown, I’m going to analyze the 4th overall pick in this year’s MLB draft, University of Louisville’s first baseman Brendan Mckay. I had the pleasure of watching Brendan play four times this year in person. I saw him play back in March against NC State and then again saw him play three times at this year’s College World Series. He is a finalist for this year’s Golden Spikes Award after batting .341 with 18 home runs and 57 RBIs. Any baseball person can tell you just by looking at his numbers, he is a very good hitter. I didn’t understand how good McKay was until I saw him in person. I strongly believe his patterns in his swing are going to allow for very similar success at the professional level.
