“I believe Major League Baseball players are learning the wrong thing”
New York Yankees star Alex Rodriguez showed his fans how to homer and dispelled baseball’s myth about pitching angles. The former baseball player guarantees that “you will never be out of a job” if you use his direct method. Please take notes.
A-Rod explained the difference between a launch angle and a line-to-line approach.
“Forget the angle of launch and remember the consistency of hitting and batting zone control from line to line. So I believe Major League Baseball players are learning the wrong thing with launch angles.
This is what A-Rod posted for his social media followers.
“How to hit home runs? Forget launch angle. Yeah, right. Link in bio.” – Alex Rodriguez
Baseball’s few greats who swing at the pitch angle are also covered in A-Rod’s video. MLB icons like Pete Rose, Derek Jeter and Ted Williams have had remarkable success with this strategy.
“So if you’re a young man or girl playing baseball or softball, hit the ball hard line to line – you’ll never be out of a job,” Rodriguez added.
