Stick with your swing and do drills to work on your bat speed ... Can't change your swing because u have seen other guys hit bombs happy style .. I came to the realization i just have to get on base so the real power hitters can do their job lol .....

im a pretty decent hitter (usually) rip em down the line, or flip em oppo, i just tried this a few times, and when i made good contact, they were screaming gap shots, i wana try and perfect this swing so im comfortable depending in certain game situations, i usually hit top 2 in the order cuz im a good hole hitter with speed (single doubles only) and i wana know the feeling to burn a few guys, lol

If you wanna burn guys than eat your wheaties! Running up on the ball wont give you any more power.

I'm not trying to bust your ba!!s lol ... Just giving an opinion ... I have seen one guy ( Adam Spratt) do the couple of steps and hit (Happy style) . He hits the ball hard as sh!t but he's an A ball player with incredible bat speed . Good luck with it . Hope it works out for ya ...

yah i got a pretty solid swing IMO, great single double hitter, i can go yard every well not very often, so i just stay way from tryin, i prefer to hit singles and doubles and be on base mosta the time, than a 1-4 outing with a dinger. i just thought id see if this happy gilmore swing helped or had any effect on a players swing.

Any way you slice it. To become a more powerful hitter you are going to have to practice. Doesn't matter if you want to learn "walk the box" hitting or work on your mechanics. Practice is necessary.

i started to use this style this year and what i found is that it helps going the other way. but u have greater chance of shooting box.......i have gone back to standing stiil in the box and find i pull it more so it can open ur game and the feilders if u get it down.......i find also that u have to stay focused on the ball more as my body is all over the place and so is my head
