Unlock your hitting potential with data-backed techniques! Debunk myths about the best adjustable baseball power swing drills for youth to high school. Dive into at-home hitting mechanics supported by science.
Here's a little bit of what is discussed in Part-3 between Perry Husband and Joey Myers:
- The discussion in the video focuses on baseball hitting mechanics and strategies, specifically critiquing traditional emphasis on exit velocity. Joey Myers and Perry Husband are in their third part of discussing these topics.
- Perry Husband shares extensive data and examples to argue that the common practice of teaching hitters to extend their arms for outside fastballs while pulling their hands in for inside fastballs may not be effective. He cites league averages and Mike Trout's specific stats to emphasize his point.
- The talk delves into what Husband calls "Effective Velocity," which considers not just the speed of the pitch but its location, trajectory, and the hitter's reaction time. According to his research, hard-hit balls usually occur against the toughest pitch combinations, like fastballs up and in.
- Both Myers and Husband lament that mainstream baseball, including the Major Leagues, often misses the nuances in hitting mechanics. Husband even proposes a hypothetical Discord discussion with pitching experts to compare philosophies.
- The discussion is framed around the broader idea of what constitutes a "successful hitting mechanic." Husband argues for a method that allows hitters to be less than perfect but still successful, while Myers questions the prevailing philosophies, opening up a dialogue on what metrics and strategies should really be used for teaching and evaluating hitters.
