I’m excited to share something with you that I’ve been working on for a few months. My Swing Review is an online, video-based feedback platform aimed at teaching swing mechanics to young players (baseball & softball).

Starting today, parents and/or guardians of players 17 and under can upload a video of their child’s swing through a secure online form located here.

Each week, a random selection of swings uploaded will be reviewed and posted to my YouTube channel for players to learn advanced swing mechanics taught at the MLB level with detailed feedback provided directly by me.

We’ll post videos of me providing feedback on swings each week.

I am passionate about swing mechanics and helping youth – I’m also thankful for the coach and peer support I’ve received over the years.

As a young player I was constantly exposed to older, more advanced players – it pushed me to be better. I’ve been fortunate to have access to great coaches and resources to learn proper swing mechanics and I want to make that information available to as many young players as possible.

With the MLB season on hold, and in between training, I’ve dedicated time to pursuing various off-field endeavors such as Bregman’s Swing Review and Bregman Cares Charity

Most recently, I hosted the FEEDHOU 24hr Live Stream Event on the popular streaming platform Twitch to raise money for The Houston Food Bank. With a goal of $3M in donations, we’ve been able to raise over $1.8M to-date thanks to the support of many who donated.

About Bregman’s Swing Review:
Through AlexBregman.com, parents of players 17 and under can upload a video of their swing for consideration. My goal is to review and provide feedback on as many swings as possible until the start of the MLB season and will continue at a lower frequency once the season begins and as time permits.

Qualifying videos uploaded by parents will be randomly selected using a third-party service. Each week, I will post a video reviewing several player’s swings to my YouTube channel. Instructions for uploading a swing can be found here, with video tutorials and examples included for parents to follow.

About FEEDHOU:
FEEDHOU is a fundraising campaign in partnership with The Houston Food Bank to help Houston-area residents experiencing food scarcity and insecurity during the COVID-19 crisis. With 100% of the proceeds going directly to The Houston Food Bank, the FEEDHOU campaign has raised over $1.8M to-date.
