Rob Ducey talks to us about swinging down vs swinging through the baseball. Rob clarifies why swinging through the baseball enables the hitter to keep the bat in the hitting zone as quickly as possible and for the greatest amount of time. This technique enables hitters to hit more types of pitches and pitches at different velocities. Using this philosophy will increase individual and team batting averages and is what all successful hitters do at every level of play.
