Miguel Cabrera Swing Mechanics

Miguel Cabrera is a hitting machine. The AL batting champ hits for power and average - .344 avg, 30 home runs and 48 doubles this year. This season should be his 5th time in the top 5 in MVP voting. He is batting .357 in the ALCS.

Here's a timely MLB Diamond Demo about how well Cabrera "stays inside the ball".... or as Mike Lowell says, how well he takes a direct path to the ball, keeping his hands close to his body. This allows him to take the outside pitch the other way and keep the inside change-up fair.

And you can see in other videos: more on the direct path he takes, his weight transfer to the front side (while keeping his upper half back), and his impressive hip rotation.
