Be A Better Hitter
50 Point Hitting Checklist

coaching baseball hitting Roberto Clemente creating energy

Everyone wants to be a better hitter. Everyones hitting style is unique. Well, the greatest baseball hitters do not look the same at all.

Everyone has their own style of hitting. It is like handwriting—we all write the same language but we all have our own unique style of writing. The same goes for hitting styles.

We all are trying to hit the ball better—but we all have our own unique style. The top baseball hitters do approach and think about hitting in a similar way.

How to Be a Above Average Hitter
A Better Hitter Has an Edge

We know how to be a better hitter. There are common concepts that are present in some form with the best baseball hitters.

Regardless of your baseball age level or ability level having knowledge of how to play baseball can help improve hitting.

In fact, having wisdom when you play baseball is often the difference in a mediocre baseball player and an average to above average player.


How to Be a Better Hitter in Baseball
Good Hitters Rarely Sit the Bench

Eventually a baseball player will go as far as their bat takes them. As long as a player can produce significant offense to help their team score runs they are likely to see plenty of playing time.

Baseball coaches are not going to leave a good offensive player on the dugout bench too long. The best athletes, the smartest hitters, and the hardest workers usually play the longest and go the furthest.

Often the less athletic and least knowledgeable hitters drop out of baseball between age 12 and 14.

Are Hitters Born or Made?
Ability is a Factor

league baseball coaching tips with Charlie Wagner

Long time Boston Red Sox scout 'Broadway' Charlie Wagner told me once, "Hitters are born--you can't make a hitter." This is largely true.

God-given talent and ability is a huge factor in hitting.

We can equip our hitters with knowledge and an aggressive mindset and help each one reach their potential.

Hitting is not for the timid. You have to have some toughness and courage to stand up to a really fast pitcher.

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...
