3 Tips on Improving your Baseball Swing

Hey guys I'm new here and have been a minor league player (Chattanooga Lookouts) for only a year. But I thought I would give some tips on improving your baseball swing

1. Your stance is the most important! This is a common mistake that most rookies have so if your body is not perfectly balanced then your swing will be off. So the basics of a stance is that your body should be in a triangular shape and your head has to be on the top of the middle space between your legs. Next you have to move your body so that it is in the same position but with your foot next to the back line of the box. That way you will have more time to look at the pitch.

2. Lined up Knuckles. This is also a really basic tip but it is the most essential as well. Having your knuckles lined up will allow your wrists to roll properly after hitting the baseball.

3. Watch your Swing. When I was young I had coaches watch my swing and tell me what was wrong but I never got to actually see it. Watching your swing will allow you to see what you are doing wrong. You can use a camera but the easiest is with an iPhone. Record your swing and use an app that can adjust the speed like SpeedUpTV and that allows you zoom up, and slow down your videos so you can accurately see any faults that you might have.

Any other tips?

... the only Lookout player to my knowledge this season who has 1 year of minor league service is Shawn Tolleson... a pitcher who has never taken a swing in the minors.
