In my experience with Andres Torres, I explain how I helped him become a major leaguer by tweaking his mechanics and his approach.
Similarly, in 2016, several of my college hitters drastically improved their batting averages.
- .315 in 2015
- .373 in 2016.
Even more impressively, another player hit...
- .250 in 2014
- .276 in 2015
- .419 in 2016
What did I tell them that made such a huge difference?
In each case, the problem was that they were following a very common, but inaccurate, cue.
The same basic cue that ruined my own swing and that got me started on my quest to understand hitting.
