When you know you’ve got it, sometimes your body takes over.
That seems to be the case on this swing from Casey Schmitt of Eastlake (Chula Vista, Calif.). The 6-foot, 190-pound senior appears to get all of that frame into a pitch during a recent game, blasting a ball toward the mountains off in the distance.
And with a quick flick of his left wrist after his follow through, the San Diego State-bound Schmitt executed a slick bat flip. It almost seems to be in the same motion as the swing.
Schmitt’s Perfect Game profile says he has a short uphill swing with strength behind it especially when he gets extended.” That swing certainly came together on this pitch, as did the bat flip.
