There are no quick fixes for young ballplayers and often not for experienced major league players either. The fix comes from finding the best hitting drill or drills that address the batter’s problem. When their hitting problem seems to be many popped up balls or strikeouts, baseball coaches should have players try some or all of the hitting drills in this series. In no time, they will see ballplayers begin to square balls up more consistently, which leads to happy players and contented parents and coaches. Give this one a try and combine it with the other batting drills in this “Fix it – No More Popups series for the solution to the lazy bat syndrome. Best o Luck.
