Batting drills are important especially in youth players
because they help develop good habits and muscle memory. Batting averages can
improve significantly by practicing proper swing mechanics every day. The more
drills and practice sessions that players do at home, the quicker their ideal
swing will start to take shape. The best swing is always one that comes when a
player is most relaxed: their reflexes are sharp, and their muscle memory is so
fine-tuned that they can make on the fly adjustments to explode through the
ball every time.
Hitting with power is not just about the size of strength of
the player. There are several power hitters in Major League Baseball that are
not 6’4” and 200+ pounds. Proper batting stance, good launch position, and
power swing rotation all play a part in hitting the ball out of the park. Raw
hitting power comes from the lower body. When players want to increase the
power behind their swings, they should focus on improving their lower body
strength, rotation and coil.
Knowing situational hitting as a batter can make the difference when it comes to winning or losing in baseball. Batters who know how to handle specific situations with runners on base or based on defensive positioning will make key offensive plays at the right time, while being selfless and sacrificing themselves and their stats to do so.
