Old or New School, It`s Still Hitting Schoolby Mik Aoki
During this presentation from the 2020 Virtual Baseball Coaches Summit, it's time for hitting school. Coach Aoki is giving us a blast from the past and a look into the future, all at the same time.
When it comes to hitting and all the technology that is out there in the name of player development, it can be overwhelming. It can be confusing. Many coaches in the new school-age are teaching different hitting concepts and mechanics to players.
Mik is going to show film with side by side comparisons of some of the best hitters in baseball, both old school and new school. You'll get breakdowns of hitters like:
- Mike Trout
- Tedd Williams

You'll also learn some foundational concepts on hitting and things that players can take advantage of easily.
