MULTI-SWING METHOD

Hitting Stance Adjustments

All hitting methods fall under the top level category of time, and distance, more specifically; distance from your body at contact. Your swing path is dependant on pitch location, velocity, and movement. High, low, extended, deep, inside, outside; ball dropping, sliding, and so on. Additionally, your reaction time, body type, swing movement, and style. Therefore, distance and the time it takes to get to the action point is the top-level category for hitting, superseding the subcategory mechanics; for the importance of the event.

Compact Batting Stance

  • Minimize swing movement, facing a dominant fastball pitcher. Movement in your stance, load, stride, and swing separation such as a high leg kick, raising your back elbow, and using bigger stride; the more time it takes getting your barrel to the ball.
  • Lower your elbow, anticipating a dominant fastball. A shorter stride works with a lower back elbow, compact swing path, and contact closer to your body
  • Set up in a hitting stance to engage the core muscles of your inner thigh and glutes; avoid disengaging your core by pushing your knees over your toes.
  • Avoid “muscling up” with your arms, and shoulders; relax your grip, removing tension from your upper body.
  • Close your mind and open your eyes, allowing your reflexes take over, you’ll surprise yourself with what you can hit.
  • To end a hitting slump, simplify your hitting stance.
