MLB Pitching/Hitting Player Mechanics


#1

Hi,
I am trying to show my players how the big league hitters and mechanics look like to help them understand better to help them get better. Which MLB pitchers and hitters would you recommend videos or pictures of to show how things are done correctly?

Thanks.

Very simple, repeatable mechanics. But honestly, each and every person is unique and their body moves in it’s own pattern. Don’t try to force kids to copy someone, but rather show them what makes a player great and let them figure out how to implement those mechanics within their own body.

About Chapman… if you watch videos when he 1st broke into the league he had major delivery issues. He has cleaned up his delivery tremendously.
