Baseball Swing Mechanics - Barry Bonds vs. Babe Ruth
The model of the modern swing is a back arm dominant movement. It is far inferior to the movement employed by the greatest hitters of all time. All the modern swing gurus who advocate this back arm dominant swing have copied guys like Barry Bonds, Manny Ramirez, and Miguel Cabrera. These guys were fantastic hitters, obviously. But they accomplished their numbers through strength, not necessarily mechanics. Their mechanics were't horrible, but they weren't ideal. When constructing your ideal swing to develop your theories on mechanics, doesn't it make sense to pick the very best hitters, who haven't been accused of taking steroids?
Babe Ruth has the greatest swing mechanics of all time and in this video I show you exactly why Ruth's mechanics were so great. As many of you know, I am spreading the news of the front arm dominant (FAD) swing. I am shouting from the rooftops about this new approach to training your swing. It's not what the old school guys are saying and it's not what the new school guys are saying. I'm the only one saying it. At least for now. Pretty soon, the FAD swing will be all the rage.
