The Art of Getting on Base with John Cangelosi

Description

When trying to reach your full potential as a hitter, we must first understand our best physical assets. When you have the gift of speed it is important that we learn how to integrate that into your game in the most effective way. Getting on base has to be the priority, which needs to dictate your approach at the plate. This style and approach greatly attributed to John Cangelosi’s success and can contribute to yours as well.  Reaching your potential in this game is about recognizing what you do well and mastering that approach.  There is no one way to hit, its about finding the approach that best compliments your game!

“Of the 2,057 Major League baseball players since 1901 with at least 2,400 career plate appearances Cangelosi ranks 244th all time in on base percentage.”    -Current MLB Executive
