 Baseball Hitting Instruction
to Maximize Power

coaching baseball hitting

It is remarkable how little baseball hitting instruction goes on in our amateur leagues. At, least the right kind of training tips should be essential.

Most all of our youth sports coaching and teaching is doing more harm than good in most cases.

Unfortunately, the parent volunteers are not professionals and lack the proper teaching knowledge and skills to keep our players competitive.

Rarely, do you come across coaching that teach strategies and fundamentals that allows hitters to have power in their bat.

Weak hitting becomes the norm for hitters. Few player development minded hitting approaches ever reach the ball players.


Electrifying Secret to
Teaching Power Hitting

youth baseball coaching tips

Simple: The key to hitting with power is well known to professional baseball people. This is not revolutionary.

Professional coaches know how to teach batters this technique.

It is time you started mentoring in your practices coaching skills to help your players develop power potential.

One thing’s for sure. Professional baseball coaches and managers begin in spring training.

Coaching power hitting strategy, drills, and lessons are practiced in the batting cage from day one. Power Hitting: Get the inside tips to improving power hitting.


Don't Be a 'Punching Judy'
Hardly Can Reach the Outfield

Imagine a rolled up newspaper. A staggering amount of parent coaching is training hitters to hit the ball as if they had a rolled up newspaper instead of a youth baseball bat.

The ball is batted from the pitcher but has no ‘pop’ behind it---hence the name ‘rolled up newspaper’.

The late former MLB pitcher, Jim Bibby used to come up to young players and mess with them after a bad batting practice.

He would ask the player teasingly, Hey, Is your name ‘Punchin’? Player would say, What?

Jim would say, Your name must to ‘Punchin’ because the way you just hit that ball you looked like a ‘Punchin’ Judy.

‘Punchin’ Judy is code word for professionals that you were swinging weak and you have no power on the ball.

You had better hit the weight room or start hitting the ball in the correct place in the strikezone.  Power is practically eliminated.


Do You Hear What I Hear?
Baseball Hitting Instruction

In amateur baseball the coaching points sound a lot like this...

  • “Make It Be there”
  • “Wait for a good One”
  • “Don’t Help Him Out”
  • Now lay off that High One”
  • “Be Patient”
  • “A Walk is as good as a Hit”
  • "Let the Ball Get Deep"..."let the ball travel" (BIG TROUBLE brewing here if you don't really know what you are talking about).

I wish you could sit in the dugout of a professional baseball game one time and listen to the coaching points and hitting suggestions. 

Yes, all these hitting points by coaches listed above may be correct in the right circumstances. In the meantime you may be doing some very harmful effects on the young batters on your ballclubs. 

These coaching points may be interpreted in a very different way and cause bad habits to evolve over time. 

See what professional baseball coaches use as their coaching points. It could help make or break most of your young hitting prospects.

Skip- Came across your books & videos 2 years ago at the end of the season.

I implemented your techniques the next season and can't thank you enough. The kids love practice, we accomplish a lot, and most importantly they all develop throughout the season. I don't worry much if we win or lose just as long as we try and they get better.

My pitchers only throw fastballs and a change up and we do just fine. If the other team hits the ball, great it gives the defense an opportunity to make a play.

I never coach from the box, I just encourage them to hit. And they all know the have the green light on 3-0. The best thing I can do for them is make them better hitters and the only way is to hit! By the way my kids are Junior Little league ages 13-14. Zach, Stockton, CA...
