For 20+ years, Ryan Braun has kept the swing that has given him tremendous success throughout his career so far.
The 2011 NL MVP Ryan Braun, talked to MLB Network about why he changed up his swing at this moment in time and why watching Cody Bellinger this year inspired him to make that change:
I just showed up and said, "Hey, I want to try this.' What actually put the thought in my head is I saw a demo they were doing on MLB Network about Cody Bellinger and his bat, and where he was starting the angel of his bat in his stance in '17 when he was really good, '18 when he was not quite as good, and then this year he's been incredible. They were showing how his bat was flatter. I was like, 'why don't try that?
Bellinger this season has found tremendous success and will likely be the top 2 in NL MVP voting when it is all said and done this season.
