the key to the slot

*Brent Rooker Mississippi State University Infielder. 2017 SEC Player of the Year*

The Slot position is the second of four parts of the swing that Chris Burke teaches on. It is quite possibly the most important. This is the position where most young hitters lose their bat and the result isn't what they worked so tirelessly for.

The 2017 SEC Player of the Year probably knows this better than anyone. Brent Rooker put on a show last year with swing after swing after swing and leaves no doubt that he understands how to properly slot the bat.

If you are wanting to learn how to mash the ball like Rooker does, then take a look at this week's Tip of the Week: The Slot Position.
