As you may not know, I am a collegiate athlete, so most of my life revolves around that
particular sport which happens to be baseball. To be a successful baseball player, you must have either a good swing or a good arm, and today I am going to break down the aspects of having a good swing. There are many things that go into having a good swing, like rhythm, form, balance, strength, bat path, timing, and much more, but the three main aspects of a good swing are form, rhythm, and timing.
The first thing to establish when trying to accomplish a good swing is your form. If your feet are not set right, or your hands aren't in the right spot, that could mean getting the game-winning hit or striking out when you had the opportunity to win the game. Starting off with form, you want to have a good base. Get your feet set in a comfortable position, most of the time either shoulder width apart or stagger stepped to give you a more open approach to the pitch coming in.
After you take care of the lower half, the next thing is the position of your hands and arms. The hands need to be back in the stance with the back elbow raised to keep from dropping the bat. If the hands and arms aren't in the right position, there will be a lot of trouble trying to get through the ball and making a good solid hit after form comes rhythm...
