Joe Mauer's SwingHitting can be complicated.

Because the high-level swing is VERY sophisticated.

For good reasons.

As I learned during my experience with Andres Torres, you have to move VERY well if you want to be successful at the major league level.

And the smallest flaw will have a huge impact.

Similarly, when I was working with Tommy Pham, understanding and improving the tiniest of movements — and inefficiencies — was they key to fixing his problem with Warning Track Power and getting the ball over the wall.

But what if someone you know or coach is trying to learn how to just make contact?

One thing that I hope this sequence makes clear is that there's a reason why I use the term Rotational Hitting.

At the most most basic level, hitting is just a matter of Rotating.
