HITTING

  • Stance Width: Mid to short.
  • Weight Distribution: Inside and front balls of feet, knees pinching inward.
  • Elbow Height: Mid to high.
  • Load: Mid to high, lifting and turning the front knee.
  • Stride: Mid to long, landing softly.
  • Swing Angle: Rising up to the ball.
  • Swing Circumference: Elongated.
  • Follow Through: Hitting a mistake pitch is a simple method to practice, in this case, the finish depends on your top and bottom hand dominance. H/T R/R are top-hand dominant, consequently, staying through the ball with a two-hand finish is a natural strength, conversely, H/T L/R are bottom-hand dominant; staying through the ball, using a one-hand finish.
