11/07/2015 - Hitting Accelerated Training Weekend (Ages 14-18) Vani showed an athletic, square stance with some rhythm at the plate at the Accelerated Training Weekend in Columbia, MD. He uses a toe-tap for timing and works through a square stride and activates the hands into an a aggressive, solid launch position. The hands work well and the swing path is short and compact as Vani attacks the inside part of the baseball. Developing a bit more explosion with the lower half will add increased bat speed and keeping the head and eyes down a bit longer through contact will allow for more extension with the barrel after impact to increase power numbers. A 2019 grad, Vani's obvious passion and desire to improve will help him develop the skills he is already displaying and get the most out of his ability.
