This video has hitting clips of Jake from our first hitting session together.
Jake is a very athletic player. Jake is strong. Jake is fast. Jake throws hard.
One of the main reasons why Jake and his father invited me to visit them was to improve Jake’s ability to hit more consistent “airplanes”.
Jake wants to hit more doubles. Our approach in achieving this goal is an UNCOMMON approach.
We use concepts that are explained in the field of neuroscience.
The first item on my list to examine was Jake’s natural HITTING TEMPO.
The reason why this is first on my list is because.., hitting tempo is directly linked to the hitter’s vision.
If the hitter’s vision is not TIMED correctly, ALL following hitting actions will be affected.
Next, we worked on correcting a few of his swing mechanics by altering Jake’s deceleration patterns.
Once we did all of this, hitting airplanes to the outfield became easy.
One more note; all of these concepts were implemented while I was throwing batting practice from a FULL-WIND-UP action.
Hitters and coaches cannot receive accurate outcomes from trying something new when they only try it from batting tees, short screen drills, or fake batting practice using a JAB-STEP. It’s just not accurate.
