Batting Practice Goals

Balancing your power swing

Improve contact closer to the body; adding to a player’s current strength, hitting extended locations; and improve top hand mechanics to hit a dominant inside fastball. Right-hand hit, and right-hand throw players, using a top-hand release follow through are top hand swing dominant, however, using a bottom hand dominant swing type (top hand release swing). The goal is balancing your swing by improving top-hand strength, and mechanics, allowing for power hitting in multiple locations; in this case, improving contact closer to your body.

Hitting Tips

  • When swing extension is not an option, due to speed and distance; facing a 95 mph pitcher, the only chance you have is to use your core.
  • Short-to-short, and flatter swing plane, avoid lifting on your follow through; it’s not an option when hitting the ball closer to your body. As you’ll over-rotate on your back foot, fall off-balance, and the rear shoulder knocks your head off the ball. The height of the pitch provides the lift for you, hitting a belt-high and above fastball, using core hitting mechanics; a home run is the likely outcome.
  • Though rare, in the past players have success hitting dominant a “up-and-inside” fastball for power, therefore it’s not an impossible feat. However, practicing to hit this pitch is virtually impossible, due to a lack of technology, but not anymore. The Laser Strap power hitting aid guides you to hands inside the ball, AKA staying connected; for the first time players can isolate, and practice hitting “unhittable” pitches.
  • Reduced time = reduced movement, therefore minimize swing movement, hitting +95 mph, higher in the zone; whip the bat around your body, allowing your top hand to take control.
  • Close your mind and open your eyes, allowing your reflexes take over, and you’ll surprise yourself with what you can hit once you stop thinking.
