HOME RUN, AND 2-STRIKE BATTING PRACTICE DRILLS
- Extending to hit a belt high, and middle contact zone is the simplest swing to master, therefore, you can decide to use a one, or two hand baseball swing follow through; depending on your top, or bottom hand dominant swing strength, refer to our Multi-Swing method to learn more.
- To improve plate coverage, and power for “low and outside” contact zones, release your top-hand as you feel pressure on you back shoulder, before it overextends; strengthening your bottom hand.
- If you’re deliberately using 2-hand grip follow through, and don’t want to change your method; we recommend our advanced Laser Whip batting practice drill for a “backup plan,” confronting a dominant fastball pitcher, who also delivers late-breaking sliders, split fingers, or change ups; handy for expanding your strike zone, with a two-strike batting count.
