Looking for [tag]baseball[/tag] [tag]hitting[/tag] [tag]drills[/tag] for your players when it’s their turn up with the little league baseball bat? You’ve come to the right place! Try out this idea below and let me know how it goes for you.
I [tag]coach[/tag] a group of 7 year old boys.
I have trouble getting them to understand some basic [tag]swing mechanics[/tag] (primarily dropping their back shoulder and elbow and swinging up versus down and through the ball).
The baseball [tag]drill[/tag] we use to make them aware and improve their swing plane is a tee drill.
I have a tee with multiple tee placements.
I place two of the tees in line with each other.
The back tee is approximately 1″ higher than the front tee.
I place a ball on the front tee and ask them to swing and hit a ground ball or low line drive.
This makes them concentrate on swinging down and through the ball. If they resort to their old [tag]swing[/tag] they will hit the back tee and receive immediate feedback of the flaw.
