There are many baseball hitting tips that are excellent, dynamic and vitally worth teaching. We are going to look at three distinctive areas to practice our coaching practic on.
Riveting strategies and vibrant practice planningare always kept simple. Training batting the right way to hit takes time and amazing patience.
The professionals know the remarkable skills it takes youth players to acquire. As a mentor, just teach a little compelling coaching at a time and know how to build confidence.
The energetic athletic position is the basis for the batting stance. In football it would be the linebacker stance. In basketball it would be the guarding stance.
The feet are spread almost twice shoulder width. The knees are bent.
The upper torso is slightly bent forward at the waist. The body weight is on the balls of the feet—not flat footed.
Most professional hitters bat with a similar variation of these fundamentals.
Did you know explosive power off wood bats is partially due to having your knees bent during the swing.
Decide for yourself. Which batter appears to be powerful, vibrant, and energetic—like he will explode?
One looks like he standing in line for lunch and one looks like an intense middle linebacker ready to pounce.
Wider feet, bend the knees and the waist forward = competitive player.
The sensational awesome feeling of hitting a ball so squarely on sweet spot that you felt absolutely no vibration is the ultimate experience in baseball.
How can I experience that exhilarating feeling over and over?
By trying to keep the wrists in a position through the contact zone so the ball 'jumps' off the bat.
If you fail to keep the hands in the power position when the bat travels through the hitting zone then a batter is in for major frustration.
Batters will rarely if ever experience the feeling of hitting the ball square on the sweet spot.
Have you ever heard youth baseball coaches or baseball parents tell players...
If hitters do not get this part of the swing right there is a very good chance their baseball careers will be short lived.
Hitting will become such a demoralizing struggle that players will try to find an escape from the game.
Ever notice hitters that...
If so, one of two things is happening. The eyes are not watching the ball or the wrists are in the wrong position during the baseball swing.
This is crucial we get this right. Few people in youth baseball know how to fix this problem of improper wrist position in the swing.
The incredible proof is in the pudding. When I see youth ball players swinging their youth baseball bats into a complete masterful powerful finish...
The indispensible powerful finish is proof that the swing fundamentals were superbly executed.
Do you have hitters that...
If so, the batter's follow-thru may be a problem. A poor, incorrect follow-thru can dramatically decrease hitting power. Lack of a proper finish will keep hitters from reaching their maximum power ceiling.
For the keys to a proper power follow through and finish to the swing it is important to understand the dynamics and techniques to coach hitters successfully.
