I started studying hitting in 2005 in an effort to
improve my older son's swing.
As part of that process, I tried to learn everything I could about
what a good swing (actually) looks like. Then, because trying to
teach something is the way to see if you actually understand it, I put together a
flipbook analysis of Albert Pujols' swing based on
the Pujols7 clip below.
Home Run Swing (Pujols7 clip)
As I recount at length in my discussion of
my experience with Andres Torres
of the San Francisco Giants, Andres then stumbled across that
flipbook. He quickly realized that what I was saying
was hard to refute but was different than everything he has been
taught by his professional coaches. He called me up and
asked me to look at his swing and see how it was different than
Albert Pujols' swing.
Using my flipbook analysis of Albert Pujols' swing -- and
Rotational Hitting 101 DVD, which is based on my
earlier analyses of Albert Pujols' swing -- Andres Torres overhauled his swing and approach and helped the Giants win
the 2010 World Series.

Since that time, my
flipbook analysis of Albert Pujols' swing
has become one of my most popular pieces I have written.

Over the years, I have expanded my analyses of Albert Pujols'
swing into two larger and more detailed

Those pieces are based on numerous High Definition and
High Speed clips that I shot of Pujols while he was playing in

About the Author
My highest-level client is
Torres of the San Francisco Giants. Using the concepts that I
discuss on my
Rotational Hitting 101 DVD and on my client-only web site, we
worked together to revamp his swing and get him to the point where
he could be successful at the major league level.
Andres isn't the only professional baseball player that I have
worked with. At last count, I have three clients in the major
leagues, one at AAA, several more
clients in the lower levels of the affiliated minor leagues, and
three clients playing for independent minor league teams and
trying to get back on the road to the major leagues. I have also
worked with a number of D-1 college baseball and fast pitch
I don't give out the names of these players because I don't
want to get them in trouble with their coaches. While they, and I,
believe in what I teach, most of the time it contradicts what
their coaches are saying, so they have to keep it to themselves
and we have to work on the down low.
