When you get to spring, November should be a month to remember. Spring baseball is months away. Everyone will have their new cleats, bats, batting gloves and, hopefully, an improved swing. November-January is all about building habits and strength for my hitters so that we can covert those habits into skills February-April.
There are seven parts of the swings and it takes 3,000 reps per part to build a habit. That’s 21,000 reps you need to execute by the end of January if you want to have a great spring season on purpose.
I believe all seven parts of the swing are important. But the 3 T’s: timing, tempo and tracking are at the top of the list for my hitters.
Timing is when you get loaded. Tempo is how you get loaded, while tracking is what you hit because you were on time and on tempo.

To help keep your skills sharp, we have introduced a new type of Skill Build—our Virtual Skill Build, where I can help you develop hitting skills anytime, anywhere using anything. Check it out.
Remember: Intelligence tops being smart.
