The Best Home Run Swings in Major League Baseball

Let's forget about the steroids and admire the swing for a second.

The short, compact cut of Tony Gwynn, the smooth sweep of John Olerud, and David Justice's 9-iron shot are three swings I miss terribly.

Butch Huskey (pictured to the left, to the left) had a back-breaking power hack I loved to watch growing up. Even Mark McGwire's effortless (keep it to yourself) slash remains vivid in my memory.

Though these liaisons of the lumber won't be seen on "Touch 'Em All" any time soon, here are some of my favorite home run swings in the game today.

I was going to create the obligatory "Honorable Mention" slide, but as I got about eight names into it, I realized it would go on for way too long for fear of leaving a pretty swing out.

Apologies to Big Papi, Travis Hafner, and the like.
