Late in 2016, Eric Thames was the first of many high-profile professionals using our baseball swing trainer, to improve bat speed, and power. Soon after, signing a sixteen million dollar contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, breaking their home run record for the first month of the season.
Late August 2016
“I just had a quick look at your swing. Bad news, your swing, more specifically your rotation on deeper contact zones needs works. Good news, you’re crushing in South Korea with your swing running at 60% of capacity.
… Mate, if you’ve aspirations of getting back to the MLB, our Laser Power Swing Trainer will get you there, advanced Laser Blast drills will fix your problems. You’re probably one of most gifted athletes playing baseball today. If you do this right, I have not doubt you will dominate. I feel sorry for pitchers ;)”
“Dude….you are spot on! As you saw, my hip rotation has been lagging for years! Even in the big leagues. I’m not satisfied to be at 60% I’m ready to strap this thing on and get to work.”
“…How are you swinging it these days?”
“Yeah man, been crushing it. Thanks!”
LASER POWER SWING PROGRAM
IN SUMMARY, YOU’RE A PLAYER SWINGING TOO MUCH WITH YOUR UPPER BODY.
Train to improve your core hitting mechanics, achieving consistent rotation, turning your back foot from your hips, helping you to stay back, maintaining balance in the batter’s box.
- Under-rotation over-rotation of your back foot, indicating over-swinging or swinging too much with your upper body as opposed to your explosive core. I know you can’t be balanced and in perfect position for every swing, however, I noticed a pattern with your back foot rotation and your balance in the box. Rotation, in particular, back foot rotation provides excellent insight into potential swing problems.
- You’re also trying to hit a deep contact zone pitch with a top hand release swing. When you do this you’re fighting the natural swing path for contact closer to your body (up-inside-fastball), your swing path for deeper contact zones should be short-to-short/explosive.
- I noticed you start almost half turned with your back; I use to do that to help me with getting to the ball. However, it doesn’t make a difference to power on the inside fastball, unless you know how to rotate your back foot from your hips.
- Take the time to watch our basic rotation video, explaining more about how to swing with your core.
ADVANCED HITTING RECOMMENDATIONS
- Focus more on your core and less on your arms, by training our advanced Laser Blast drills. You have to let go of the idea of swinging with your arms and start turning with your hips. It’s like the matrix; you need to free your mind. Forget about all you know about swinging with your arms and start thinking about turning with your hips.
- Work on improving your swing foundation. I”d recommend you reduce the in turn of your back foot, allowing you to be more comfortable in a spread out stance. Training core mechanics improves your rotation, and bat speed, critical for hitting an above average MLB inside fastball.
YOU CAN USE OUR BASEBALL SWING TRAINER WITH ANY HITTING DRILL, ACCOMMODATING TO ALL TYPES OF SWINGS. INCLUDING:
- Tee-drill or toss drill, including front and side toss.
- Up close over-hand drill, coach sits down on a chair and throws the ball behind L-screen.
- Regular batting practice, on-field or in the cage.
- Hitting against pitchers on your team, on the baseball field.
Now here’s how it’s going to go down. Grab a heavy training bat….
- Swinging the bat with your core is the only way you can hit the dominant fastball pitchers.
- Take three rounds of Laser Beam Top-Hand Side Toss. Heavy bat top hand side toss is your money drill, being a B/T: L/R player, bottom hand dominant swing, coaching you to hit “up-and-inside” fastballs, 500ft straight down the line; with no “hook-spin.”
- Personally, I use a 34 inch Mizuno heavy training bat for this drill, you’re strong, I recommend you do the same. The extra weight exposes players “arming” their baseball swing.
- After a few rounds, get into the cage for Laser Blast Front Toss, with one of your hitting coaches watching from a side-on view.
Laser Blast Front Toss Round 1
Unlocking your core power
- Get your hitting coach to randomly toss the ball down and out of the strike zone, as you hold your swing.
- Make sure you take the pitch at the very last second, don’t disconnect your arms from your core; instead drive your back elbow into your torso while keeping your hands back.
- Taking the force are your core muscles, enabling you to hold your swing; critical for “laying off” a late-breaking slider, and change-up. You can only do this with proper core mechanics/Kinetic Chain, “big muscles first, little ones follow.”
Laser Blast Front Toss Round 2
- Tossing the ball, “up-and-inside,” and mixing in pitches 3-to-6 inches off the inside edge of home plate. Your natural instinct is to take this pitch, however, swing away, aiming to hit the ball in the pull side alley; you’ll surprise yourself at what you can hit, using our Laser Power Swing Trainer.
- You have to see it for yourself, after crushing ten “up-and-inside,” pitches; hitting the ball with backspin, keeping the ball in fair territory, it all starts to click. After which, things progress quickly.
Up to you if want to practice with Multi-Swing Method, but I recommend you do.
Players with experience are more likely to comprehend my advanced level Multi-Swing Method, working hand-in-hand with The Laser Power Swing Trainer. Long Story Short, the Multi-Swing Method states your contact zone determines swing mechanics. Coaching you to hit all contact zones for power, providing a method to hit for a high batting average, and more home runs.
I can see you’re a B/T: L/R player, same as me. Players who are bottom-hand dominant hitters traditionally use a top-hand release follow through, hitting the low ball, however, struggling with up-and-inside fastballs; forcing you to make contact closer to the body
The MLB coaches one-dimensional top-hand dominant mechanics using a “loopy launch angle,” swing path; most are B/T: R/R with biase for top hand mechanics, encouraging players to determine the outcome of the swing path, before they swing. Generally, sitting on a mistake pitch such as the hanging slider, however, the problem is the best pitchers don’t make mistakes.
Alternatively, my Multi-Swing Method coaches you to be both; a good top-hand and bottom-hand hitter, providing the skills to hit all pitches and locations for power.
