In This Baseball Hitting Mechanics Video,
…We're comparing the “Fight” position of one of my young hitters to Robinson Cano. You'll discover a little known technical flaw limiting explosive rotational power. Cleaning this up gears the body for a more effective turn.
We're going over:
- What is an optimal “Fight Position”
- Hitter compensations associated with a bad Fight Position
- How-to get into a good Fight Position

Robinson Cano has such a friction-free swing that it's critical we copy his pre-turn positioning. He's one of the most consistently powerful guys in the game, and not very big by today's standards.
Here's Robinson Cano in the 2013 home-run derby:
