BASERUNNING

WHAT?   Pre-pitch Preparation as a Baserunner

HOW? Via [Griffey’s baserunning and insight into an iconic moment in 1995 ALDS Game 5 win over NYY]

 

My takeaways:

Griffey’s Pre-Pitch Baserunning Mindset:

- S.O.S (knowing the signs, outs, situation) and where the ball is…

- More on the Situation:

*Knowing the positioning of the OF’s

*Knowing which batted ball he can go 1st to 3rd on

*Knowing which batted ball he can potentially score on

*Knowing his own field and the advantages it could potentially give him.

 

 

HITTING

WHAT?

Direction Drill (and quieter head move)

One of my favourite hitters to watch: [Arenado Swing Slomo]

 

WHY?

Help keep quieter head move (during swing) and direct energy thru the big part of the field

 

HOW?

MENTAL GAME & SOME

Expectations - another one of my favourite human beings:

 

I challenge you to research Stephen Hawking's life and story.

 

Till we meet again.
