The Pure Swing Program is an innovative performance system that emphasizes building a balanced and efficient swing from the ground up. We will identify and discuss the common denominators that all great Major League hitters share. This includes an introduction to the process of natural hitting mechanics – vision, grip size, stance width, spine-angle, stride-length and swing mechanics. Each individual athlete has their own unique bio-mechanical structure. By analyzing the athletes body type and structure, we are able to identify the positions the body needs to be in to maximize their performance on a consistent basis. When hitters discover their optimal stance width, posture (spine angle), and grip, the core and leg muscles are immediately engaged causing a dramatic increase in ground force and rotation. From here, all the natural fundamentals occur in proper sequential order.
This is the basis of a Pure Swing.
Although there are several approaches to hitting, there are more efficient ways for the body to maximize performance, with minimal effort. Hitting a baseball is the hardest thing to do in any sport where the pitcher is throwing the ball on average between 8-11 degrees on a downward plane. To become a great Pure hitter, you must develop a swing plane that is consistently matching the downward angle of the ball.
In recent years, offensive numbers have continued to decline dramatically from Little League, High School, and College all the way to the Major League level due to many new unnatural philosophies which have caused the masses to drift away from the natural fundamentals that the great hitters have utilized for generations.
