Coming up with new ideas for [tag]baseball hitting practice[/tag] can sometimes be a challenge. Here’s a [tag]baseball coaching tip[/tag] that was sent to me recently. Give this a try!
I use stations, one with a cone hitting into the fence, one with a [tag]baseball coach[/tag] flipping balls for a batter to hit into the fence, a coach pitch bunting station, and last but not least the zip and hit station.
The zip and hit is the ball that is fed to the batter with the separation of two strings that are strung through the center of a softball. You can buy this at Dicks for about $30. At the zip station the batter takes a zip pitch at 5 different speeds starting slow and ramping up to very fast.
We rotate the stations at a fast pace and in groups to keep things moving. With this station approach we can get a lot of hitting in. The zip and hit is fun and is giving our [tag]baseball[/tag] players perfect pitches at different speeds to hit. This has helped our kids hit much better.
If we don’t have a coach to man a station a player can step in to help.
