Baseball Instruction - He Told You What About Your Swing?

By Nate Barnett

Baseball instruction is everywhere. Graphs, charts, philosophies, gimmicks, facilities, machines, etc. Sometimes I feel my head may explode from baseball information overload. So where does one turn? How do you sift through all of the baseball instruction and information and find what works for you? I have some help for you.

Baseball instruction is big business. With high speed internet, baseball instruction has moved to a different level. Information and training tip mania is quickly approaching critical mass. Ironic isn't it that you're reading more baseball instruction here and I'm contributing to the issue at hand. In any matter, here is a bit of advice as you go about your own learning, development, and teaching of this great game.

1. Learn to ask questions. If you are receiving baseball instruction in person, get good at asking for explanations. This will accomplish a couple of things. First, it will help the information stick better for you as you begin to truly understand the part of the game you're working on. Secondly, it will help you decipher the baseball intellect of your instructor (assuming you utilize the next step properly).

2. Network. The more baseball connections you make, the greater the ability you have to cross-reference training information, instruction, and methodology from a variety of sources. Without a network of knowledgeable individuals, you must take the advice of your source and assume it is accurate. Most professionals respond quickly to email, I know I do. Especially when I know that I can add value to one's game. That's a good place to start.

3. Learn. Read things on baseball instruction, listen to teaching, attend clinics, get on YouTube, etc. There is no shortage of accessible information out there (especially in the online world), just a shortage of desire to sift through all of it. But if you can sift properly, it will be one of the most invaluable baseball tips you'll learn.
