Launch Angle – Baseball Notes

Launch Angle

Time stamps:

0:25 Launch angle is a measurement, not a teaching tool.

0:45  Launch angle should match player's exit velocity

2:35  Bowls of soup on shoulders.  Don't spill the soup in stance or takeaway.  Spill once moving toward the ball.

3:00  Don't create launch angle with stride

3:40  Strong posture is key

4:19  Youtube breakdowns: Some are very good at breaking down swing, but the application is key.

6:20  I'm teaching it (launch angle) without teaching it.

Crushing fear and self doubt on the baseball field

"Clint,  we purchased your program back in April. Hayden (my son/10u AAA) and I completed the series.  He started playing select ball about 5 seasons ago and has mostly struggled at the plate. He was able to mask his OBP by being very patient at the plate and taking a lot of walks. Quality at bats had been non-existent up until about two months ago, which coincides with the time line in which we were actively going through the Bulletproof Hitter program. During this two month stretch he has absolutely ripped the cover off the ball which has also spilled over to better defense for him. This past Saturday in a USSSA tournament here in TX he hit the fence on the fly about halfway up, he only missed hitting out by a few feet.  This is by no ways a platform for me to brag (albeit I was very proud), but a testament to the program. Hayden and I had a talk last night and I asked him what changed for him, why had he become a beast at the plate and so aggressive…..his response “my mindset is completely different”. I absolutely suspected it was your program, however I wanted to hear it from him.  Thank you so much for putting this together!"   Steve L.
