MLB Power Rankings: The 15 Most Successful “Ugly Swings” of Baseball
Courtesy of: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com

Baseball players such as Robinson Cano, Alex Rodriguez, Albert Pujols and Carlos Gonzalez have pristine strokes like the brush-hand of a Michelangelo.

Their swings are envied by most and appreciated by all, reflecting in the immense success each has experienced throughout varying career lengths.

Others though are not quite as blessed with natural mechanics and the smoothness of their superstar peers.

They may look off-balance or out of control, but these hitters compensate for a lack of aesthetics with their God-given baseball talent and hand-eye coordination.

Vladimir Guerrero was an easy choice for this list—as evidenced by the head photo of the piece—but I will go over 14 others (and some honorable mentions) who deserve similar recognition.

Feel free to add other choices that were omitted in the comments thread.
