My Very Specific Style Of Directional Hitting

Hello everyone, I'm sure most of you know me around here by now lol. Anyway I just wanted to come on and post my very specific style of Directional hitting I developed late last year and have had really good success with.

Balanced Hitters [all fields in 30s]:
0-0,0-1,1-1,3-2: Just X no Direction
1-0,2-0,3-0,2-1,3-1: Look to pull.
0-2,1-2,2-2: Look to go the other way. (Contact swing unless 90+ contact or star hitter)

Balanced Hitters [30s or higher to pull/oppo but 20s up the middle]:
0-0,0-1,1-0,1-1,2-0,2-1,3-0,3-1,3-2 Look to pull if it's the highest %.
0-2,1-2,2-2: Look to go the other way. (Contact swing unless 90+ contact or star hitter)

Pull hitters [Pull field % under 45%]:
0-0,0-1,1-0,1-1,2-0,2-1,3-0,3-1,3-2: Look to pull.
0-2,1-2,2-2: Look to go the other way. (Contact swing unless 90+ contact or star hitter)

Extreme Pull hitters [Pull field 45% or higher]
Always look to pull unless baserunner rules apply.
Unless 2 strikes until 3-2 (Contact swing unless 90+ contact or star hitter)

Push hitters:
0-0,1-0,2-0,3-0: Take until you get a strike.
2-1,3-1: Look to pull.
1-1: Just press X.
0-1,0-2,1-2,2-2,3-2: Look to go the other way.(Contact swing unless 90+ contact or star hitter)

Extreme Push hitters:
0-0,1-0,2-0,3-0: Take until you get a strike.
3-1: Look to pull.
0-1,0-2,1-1,1-2,2-2,3-2: Look to go the other way.(Contact swing unless 90+ contact or star hitter)

So that's my approach it's worked really well for me so thought I'd share. Have fun guys.

HCP

Occasionally I will with power hitters, but only if I'm ahead in the count by 2 (2-0,3-1).

Re: My Very Specific Style Of Directional Hitting

Thought I'd break this back for everyone as it has been great for me over the last 3 seasons.

@Thewarmwind this is @ you buddy!

Re: My Very Specific Style Of Directional Hitting

Hey Cpt,

Couple of quick questions, (1) when you say star hitter is it their profile as star or where they bat in the lineup, ex. 1st, 3rd or 4th. (2) Do you treat the extreme push hitter the same as a normal push hitter?

Thanks

Hey man good to hear from you again!

1. I really just use the guys that are/I considered to be the better hitters in the league/on their team and treat them as "star" hitters.

2.
Extreme Push hitters:*
0-0,1-0,2-0,3-0: Take until you get a strike.
3-1: Look to pull.
0-1,0-2,1-1,1-2,2-2,3-2: Look to go the other way.(Contact swing unless 90+ contact or star hitter)

I also edited the OP to include extreme push hitters, guess I forgot them the first time lol.

Re: My Very Specific Style Of Directional Hitting

What about balanced hitters that slightly favour the push side?
Or Pull hitters ( below 45%) that are much higher down the middle and very low on the push side?

Thanks for the help!!

Re: My Very Specific Style Of Directional Hitting

Love seeing people share their strategies.

I don't have one worthy of a thread.

Thanks for those who do and share with the community.

This interface is more nuanced than some give it credit for being.
