The angled closed hitting drill is the same as the open hitting drill but with the lower body angled in the opposite direction. This drill is good for stiff batters. Like the angled open hitting drill, you want to try to hit the ball up and to center field.
Angled Closed Hitting Drill Instructions
Get into position
Get into launch position but angle your lower body through the back hip and away from the diamond. The lower body will be angled away, and the feet are staggered.
Pull back slowly
Like the open hitting drill, resist turning the hips and shoulders.
The angle of the barrel and contact position should be the same as in the open hitting drill. To get the ball up and to center field, you must make sure you have the right angle on the barrel.
