Babe Ruth Swing

The Babe Ruth swing. Man, you talk about powerful. This heavyweight Yankee Hall of Famer generated more power in his swing than any other hitter of his time.

He changed the game by making the home run a priority. Another pull hitter, the Babe took advantage of Yankee Stadium's short right field fence.

He cocked his bat before getting it into the hitting position which added to the whip like torque he laid on the baseball.

Babe Ruth didn't "stay back" as much as most power hitters do with most of his weight on his front foot after the swing. He finished his follow through high due to his uppercut swing.

But he drove through the ball, always trying to put it in the air.
