so belt changed the grip on his bat and is contributing that to his success?
They had him loosen his grip on the bat (which generates more power), and move to the back of the batters box, which enables him to see the ball just a little bit longer before it reaches the plate. That extra time has given his bat speed a huge boost. Now instead of that awkward hitch in his swing on inside pitches, hes staying back and using that extra bat speed to turn on the ball. For a tall hitter, he has one of the quickest swings in baseball.
Theyve been telling him to make these changes for 2 years, and he finally listened.
