THE MONEY DRILL
LASER BEAM, HEAVY BAT SIDE TOSS
“Top hand side toss is your money drill. Being a left-hit/right-throw guy the following drill helps to improve your weaker top-hand, allowing you to hit up-inside-and-deep pitch locations 500ft; straight down the line with backspin. Take a few rounds of Laser Beam Side Toss, top-hand isolation; using a heavy training bat forcing you to use your core. Personally, I use a 34inch +weighted; Mizuno. You’re strong enough; you can do the same. After you are comfortable with using your core, you can progress to the next steps. Head down at contact and after contact. You can’t keep your head down on the follow through if you unnaturally lift with your arms when hitting the deep ball, you have to use your hips, relax your upper body and use a flatter swing plane.” – Recap: 13/08/2016 10:33 PM.
