In today’s video blog post, we are featuring an excellent hitting drill set that will develop and increase your hitters bat speed.

Drop Ball Hitting Drill

  • The coach should stand right in front of the plate and drop the ball.
  • The hitter will react and try to hit the ball.
  • The coach can hold the ball for longer and shorter periods of time to test the hitters attention and response.

 

Extreme Ball Hitting Drill

This is a variation of the Drop Ball Drill

  • In this drill, you will use a dowel or similar piece of wood with a round diameter, and a whiffle ball.
  • The coach should stand right in front of the plate and drop the ball.
  • The hitter will react and try to hit the ball.

 

Tee Stopwatch Hitting Drill

  • The coach (or a partner) starts the stopwatch as soon as the hitter begins to move. (The hitter moves on his own command, not a coach command.)
  • Stop the stopwatch when the ball hits the net.
  • Try to swing faster, and improve your time with each swing.
  • When you find that your time is increasing, take a break and then repeat the drill.
