Our approach is to identify each individual hitter’s swing. We also study the way their bodies move so we can teach them the correct mechanics for that individual. We work very closely with the hitter to get them in a batting stance that works for them. We teach them to improve their timing and movements to get their barrels to stay in the zone as long as possible.
THE BATTING STANCE
Setting up the right foundation to stay balanced throughout the batting swing. Proper placement of feet throughout the swing.
FAST HANDS & LOADING
Ensuring the batter is keeping his hands back in order to produce proper tension and explosion to the ball. Working on the heavy and light drills to help develop the batters bat speed through the zone.
EXPLODING THE HIPS & LOWER HALF
Working on the concept of “from the ground up”, and ensuring we are utilizing our legs to generate power. Developing explosion from the hips and generating tension transfer to the upper body and hands. Ensuring the hips are activated first and working on utilizing the hips to generate power.
POINT OF CONTACT & TIMING
Keeping the eyes and head tracking the ball at all times to ensure solid contact and drive. Working on timing the pitcher and movement
Working on driving the ball to all fields. Properly working on inside and outside pitches to properly pull and drive balls to all fields.
HITTING BREAKING BALLS
Staying back on the ball, think fastball first and adjusting to the pitch.
