Why the pros are pros.

Does everyone know Martin Prado of the Atlanta Braves? Starting Second Base. If you don’t you should. He’s 2nd in the National League in Average hitting .426. Top 10 in doubles, 2nd in the league with 20 hits.

Yet he’s concerned about his mechanics. “It’s good for me that all the results are happening in a good way right now,” Prado says. “But in the long term, if you don’t fix your mechanics, everything ends.”

Here’s a guy in the top 5 hitters right now in all of baseball and striving to get better.

Take the time in the cage to work on your swing. Strive to get better. Do everything with a purpose.

Then in the game, get up there and rip. Let your practice dictate your performance knowing that you’ve put in the time.
