    Griffey has the best looking swing in baseball

    I believe it is the nicest looking swing in all of baseball. I love it, perfection at the plate!

    If there's a prettier swing, I'd like to see it.

    Not saying it is better but I have always thought that Michael Tucker's swing looks alot like JR's.





    Here's a link to the slow motion video of Jr's swing

    Before Griff, I loved Will Clark's swing. I really like Chipper Jones' left handed swing as well, it looks a lot like Clark's swing. But yeah, I'd say Jr's is better than all of theirs.

    Besides Griffey, I have always loved Manny Ramirez's swing. I think he has one of the purest and most natural swings in baseball today.

    Beltran - I like his stance better, swings are about the same.
    Thank goodness for baseball.

    I don't think it's better than Junior, and I dislike what he stands for as a player, but I love watching Gary Sheffield "attack" a pitch with that bat rocking back and forth.

    I always loved Fred McGriff's "one-handed wrap-around" finish. He could hit a little too.

    Yes. I've thought so even before he was a Red...

    Re: Griffey has the best looking swing in baseball

    You know how some kids practice the swings of players,....and some are better than others at it. I've got to say that my son was great at it, and his Junior swing was perfect (he probably saw it over a 1000 times as a Mariner).

    Even watching him do it, it looks like the perfect swing. You have to stand and admire your shot, too.

    I kinda like my son's swing.

    You will get no argument from me about the beauty of Griffey's swing.
