Top Hitting Drills
Another fine drill that helps prepare hitters to swing with rhythm and power. With this drill, batters take a little hop forward as the pitcher begins their motion towards home plate and then they hop back to their rear leg building up their power and staying back. The nice thing about this drill is it creates movement and readiness on the lower half but allows players to start the bat and their upper body in the best hitting position, so they do not have to mess with that part of preparing to swing.
