It's not worth much to make contact if you don't put any power behind your bat.That's not going to take you very far in baseball.What you need to try to do is use a swing that sraws on about eighty to ninety percent of your power. You will find that you are much more accurate with the barrel. Trying to hit the ball with your max power most of the time is a recipe for splinters in your backside. What does it get you?
If you want to echieve long-term success, though, you'd be better off being more consistent. In the process you'll achieve a more accurate barrel to ball contact, resulting in harder line drives. . So, how do we go about achieving our goal? A good grasp on basic swing mechanics would be a nice start. Let's start with a solid base. Just like a golfer, get the swing down so that muscle memory takes over. Your swing will come to you without even having to think about it. You might be thinking, "That sounds great, but easier said than done." Well, it's not that hard at all.
If you put in the hard work, and dedicate yourself to improvement, you'll soon have a fluid, efficent, stylish and powerful swing at your disposal.
