A look some of Bellinger’s swings tonight. Clip one a hard take, clip two a foul ball, and clip three a home run. (GIF credit: Craig Hyatt, Twitter). Clips one and two are telling signs of a hitter that is right.
✅shows lower half working properly in balance allowing him to shut down his swing without committing this deep in the path.
✅shows he is smoothly transitioning into into the swing path with his hands in sequence behind his forward move allowing his barrel to work.
✅He isn’t grinding and manipulating his barrel to the ball. Result of good timing and good technique.
The Foul Ball:
✅The intent in which he swings the bat and just misses this tough slider, shows he is feeling confident, is on time, and he is slowing the game down.
✅He is timing up and executing his A swing through the pitch plane, he isn’t grinding and fighting to make contact.
✅When you have good habits and stay consistent pitch to pitch and stay on your approach, the good results come more often. As is with the case with Belli this year 💯
