We can tell you how to hit a home run in MLB.
Your swing needs to be balanced and fluid, yet short and powerful.
It has to have some loft, too.
That’s easy, right?
Hitting a home run in MLB is one of the hardest things to achieve in professional sports.
Yet Los Angeles Angels star Shohei Ohtani makes it look so smooth and easy.
On Wednesday, he hit two home runs against the Chicago White Sox.
Both were equally impressive.
Here is Ohtani’s swing: it’s a beautiful, yet incredibly effective group of body parts moving in perfect harmony.

It’s so elegant, yet so violent.
The power comes from his legs and hips, but his upper body strength gives him incredible barrel control and bat speed.
It’s an incredibly powerful swing, with enough loft and power to hit long home runs often.
Ohtani is now up to 15 home runs on the season, and May still isn’t over.
At this rate, he projects to come very, very close to his career-high of 46, established in his MVP year in 2021.
You won’t find a player capable of hitting more than 40 home runs in a season while also striking out more than 200 foes from the mound with a sub-3.00s ERA.
Ohtani can do that and more: all he needs is health.
He has the power, he has the energy, he has the youth, the drive, and the motivation to keep pushing his own limits.
That’s how history is made.
With that incredibly powerful swing, he has made millions of dollars and still has a lot more to earn.NEXT: Angels Insider Reveals New Anthony Rendon Update
