This drill works on developing a full swing.

Drill Setup

  • Batter takes top of tee or a bat or other similar item and gets in normal stance.

How it Works

  1. Batter gets into stance.
  2. He loads and swings.
  3. During his swing he releases the tee so that it flies toward the pitcher’s mound.
Swing and release, throwing the top of the tee.

Coaching Tips

  • Batter should be loading up and doing everything the same way as he does during his normal swing.
  • In this drill, the farther the tee is tossed the better. You want the batter to be taking powerful but fundamentally sound swings.
