13 Sep Advanced 2 Strike Hitting
SURVIVING WITH 2-STRIKES
COMBINING LASER BLAST AND WHIP
Blasting core driven power, and extension: Generate the bat speed required to make contact, creating Momentum-Driven Power; after you disconnect from your core.
What’s if for?
Hitting when you’re behind in the batting count, and facing power pitchers, locating secondary pitches. For example, a hard and late-breaking slider on the outside corner of home plate; hitting with two strikes.
What you’ve learned?
Combining our advanced Laser Blast, and Laser Whip methods you possess the skills for success against late-breaking pitches, combining bat speed, power, and extension.
- Spread out and minimize swing movement
- Initiate your swing using your core
- Follow your natural swing path, whipping your bat to the ball, and past contact.
- Elongated and circular swing plane, your circle gets bigger as the distance of your contact depth moves away, and lower from your body’s center.
- Stay back, stay centered; ensuring your head remains in the middle of your center of gravity. Otherwise, known as; “staying in your legs.”
- To reach the outside edges of home plate, release your top when you feel pressure on your back shoulder. Failure to do this results in a weak, ground ball and pop-up or striking out. Why? Anatomically, your front arm has a longer reach in front and away from the plate. Regarding, low-and-outside or low- and-in-front, contact depths; if you keep both hands on the bat, your back gets in the way.
