Why Do You Have A Long Baseball Swing?

Undisciplined Batting Practice

Practicing a long swing results in a long game day swing, simple?

Batting Practice Approach

Overswinging, and excessive pulling of the baseball, reduces bat speed, triggering you to lunge, and reach. Pulling off the ball, and failure to keep your balance are indicators of overswinging. To fix a long swing, use a batting practice ratio of seventy percent up the middle, and outfield gaps; thirty percent pull-side.

Jumping, and Lunging

When you jump, and lung out at the baseball your disconnect your swing from your power muscles, resulting in a long swing. Failing to see the baseball triggers lunging, therefore, track the ball longer with contact closer to your body; preparing your swing for a dominant inside fastball.

Excessive Swing Movement

Excessive and unnecessary upper and lower body movement creates a long swing. Maximize batting power using a short load, stride, and swing path; use this as your foundation you can always fall back on in clutch hitting situations.

Arming Your Swing

There’s no matching the speed, and strength of your core muscles, therefore, swinging with your slow and weak arm muscles is not the answer to fixing your long swing. During batting practice hit with your core muscles, improving bat speed, power and contact accuracy; staying connected with your back elbow to your torso, critical for success with an inside fastball.

Confidence

Doubt triggers mistakes including a long swing, confidence begins with challenging yourself to hit an inside pitch during batting practice. Opposingly, if you only swing at the ball down the middle of the plate, you’ll build “false confidence” in your conscious mind, however, you can’t lie to your subconscious mind, the catalyst for bat speed for when it counts the most.

Bat Speed Battle Plan

What’s more embarrassing? Spreading out in your batting stance, lowering your elbows, shortening up on the bat, or striking out four times? Swing adjustments are critical to successful game day hitting. During batting practice spend the time to develop a two-strike approach, alongside, strategizing a victory plan for battling the dominant fastball pitchers.
