Best Swing in Baseball? in MLB Posted July 21, 2007 Griffy - by a long long margin Ichiro/Iwamura - they have very similar swings and it is amazing how their set up leads to amazing contact. If I were teaching kids to hit I would want them to emulate this Matt Holliday - One of better young power hitters Is Jay Buhner still in the league? I realize he has retired but he always had a great swing. Sheffield - I know its not sweet, and I know its jsut to mangle the ball, but I think there is something to it.
