Sydney Sherrill Softball Swing Analysis
When it comes to modern day players, I've not really been paying attention for the last decade or so. People often ask me my opinion about the swings of some of the best players of today, and I embarrassingly can't give an answer because I just haven't been paying attention. I've been knee deep in figuring out the swing and then, once I did that, writing books about it. Most of my video analysis came in the first decade that I was studying the swing. I didn't see the need in looking at a lot more swings in the last ten years because I already attained a grasp of what the great swing looks like. From there, I didn't need to keep watching more players and more swings. I just needed to take more swings, try to make my swing look like the greats, and figure out just what feeling there is in a great swing that isn't in a good swing or average swing.
Now that I'm finished figuring out the swing (it only took twenty years) and writing my books, Swing Cheat Code and Front Arm Dominant, I can lift my head and take a look at some of the players that are out there. One that I recently came across that caught my attention is Sydney Sherrill. Her positioning at contact is so emblematic of a front arm dominant swing.
In this video, I show you how she takes advantage of the moving fulcrum by being able to hit the ball with such a compressed contact position.
