Tips and Suggestions
PITTSBURGH – When taking a road trip to a faraway destination there is very often a very specific route to get from Point A to Point B.
Some routes may be obvious, others not so much. But through years and years of use, these specific routes have been deemed the best (or most ideal) way to arrive at a certain destination by the majority of travelers.
Baseball is different, however.
ATLANTA – Training, Instruction, Preparation, Success.
Our DK TIPS series continues today with Heath Honeycutt of Ninth Inning Baseball in Atlanta. In the video above, Heath tells you how to improve your Trigger To Impact time and create more momentum toward the ball at impact.
Heath was an All-American and All-ACC performer at Georgia Tech and was selected in the 4th Round of the 1998 MLB Draft by the Florida Marlins. He played six years in the major leagues for the Marlins, Cincinnati Reds and Arizona Diamondbacks, before taking a position as a scout for the Toronto Blue Jays.
Heath currently owns and operates Ninth Inning Baseball, a Diamond Kinetics Partner Program.
