David Ortiz | Swing Like the Greats


David Ortiz has solidified himself as one of the best hitters of all time. In this video we take a look at his swing movements compared to the Greatest hitters ever (Ted Williams, Barry Bonds, Hank Aaron and Babe Ruth).

Whether it was on purpose or not, Ortiz has been able to incorporate very similar swing movements to those of the all time greats.

He swings with BIG movements. I love to see big movements and players who maximize their bat speed. A player with big movements can always shorten up as needed, where as a player who never learns to swing big, can't all of a sudden hit for power.
