Why Your Baseball Swing is Fundamentally Flawed: Experts Joey Myers and Perry Husband Spill the Truth
In this meeting, we discuss various aspects of hitting and pitching strategies in baseball.
We delve into the intricacies of hitting techniques, including:
- The importance of maintaining a locked-out lead arm
- Creating a stretch in the wrist
- Maximizing leverage and consistency in the swing
We also explore trade-offs, such as:
- Hitting homers on low and away pitches versus killing the top of the zone
- The importance of getting hands to the right position when loading
Additional Hitting Concepts
- Hitting the ball back through a tube
- Skipping the barrel across a table
- The difference between effective and ineffective barrel paths in different parts of the strike zone
Swing Flaws and Their Impact
We cover the importance of understanding swing flaws in hitting and how they can affect a player’s ability to make solid contact with the ball. We caution against copying the swings of professional players who are bigger and stronger, explaining that what works for them may not work for others.
The Physical Best Swing
We discuss the physical best swing a hitter can make, which is the most efficient, powerful, and consistent.
Timing and Angles
We emphasize the importance of understanding:
- Timing tendencies
- Angles that hitters hit pitches at
These aspects are often not taken into account in scouting reports.
We also cover pitching strategies and how they can be used to dominate hitters. We analyze specific examples from recent games and discuss:
- The importance of understanding the speed differential between pitches
- The need for pitchers to be aware of their pitch counts
- Focusing on inducing ground balls to minimize the number of pitches thrown
Overall, we highlight the importance of effective pitching strategies in achieving success on the mound.
Data Analysis and Testing Theories
Throughout the meeting, we emphasize the importance of analyzing data and testing out theories to improve hitting and pitching strategies.
Final Thoughts and Resources
We encourage listeners to try out our techniques and see what works best for them. We also express mutual respect and admiration for each other’s work, and provide information on where people can find Perry’s books and website.
