Day 2 Bat Load hitting Drill
Here is the second drill for coaches to try to help players find a comfortable way for them to load the bat when preparing to swing. Each player is different so a trial and error process is often necessary to arrive at the best one for each hitter. With youth batters, it is often best to start their bat as close to launch position as possible and use their lower half to prepare the swing. As the pitcher starts their delivery towards the catcher, players begin their preparation.
