The Pure Swing is a Southern California-based performance academy established by 17-year Major League Baseball veteran, former USA Baseball Hitting Coach, Los Angeles Dodger, and Red Sox Hall of Famer Reggie Smith, and business partner Ryan Lehr. Smith, a 7-time Major League All Star and World Series Champion, is one of the most sought after hitting instructors in all of baseball.
Don’t miss this All-Star learning and development experience for youth, high school and collegiate athletes aspiring to play at a higher level to gain valuable insight, instruction, useful tips and keys to build a powerful and natural swing from the ground up.
Through informative video and interactive presentations, they will identify and discuss the common denominators that all great Major League hitters share. This includes an introduction to the process of natural hitting mechanics – vision, grip size, stance width, spine-angle, stride-length and swing mechanics.
The program emphasizes building a balanced and efficient swing from the ground up. Athletes have their own unique biomechanical structure. By analyzing the athlete’s body type and structure, we can identify their ideal athletic position to maximize performance and consistency. When hitters determine their optimal stance width, posture (spine angle) and grip size, the core and leg muscles become fully engaged dramatically increasing ground force reaction and rotation. As a result of being in balance, the bodies natural swing mechanics will occur in proper sequential order.
