If you are a hitter who wants to make it to the next level, you hopefully understand by now that it’s going to take hard work.
With that being said, two other crucial factors of being a great hitter are
1. Knowing your swing
2. Having a hitting work routine that you trust
Matt Murton has hit everywhere he has gone. From hitting .385 as a Freshman All American at Georgia Tech, to hitting .286 in five MLB seasons, to going to Japan and breaking Ichiro’s single season hits record… Murton rakes everywhere he goes.
It’s been awesome working with him this off season and getting a front row view of his work ethic and routine (Plus he’s an awesome person).
The dude clearly has a plan and knows what he needs to do to continue to get better every day.
If you are a hitter, I can’t recommend strongly enough- WATCH THIS VIDEO!! of Matt walking you through his exact hitting routine and explaining the why throughout.
Then my challenge to you becomes this- Create your own routine. Feel free to start with Matt’s routine and then tweak it here and there until you have a great routine that works for you.
Oh, and by the way, be sure to watch to the end for Matt’s free 30 second Japanese lesson! Priceless.
