This is a dry swing hitting drill in which you pull something heavy in order to feel the rotation of the body in detail, as the mechanics are slowed down. You can use a tire, a weight plate, or some other objecct that gives you some good resistance. By pulling on the heavy object, you can feel that the rotation is much harder.
- Tie one end of a rope to a tire or other weighted object, with the other end tied to the handle of the baseball bat.
- As you swing, the focus is to move the weighted object and feel the rotation of the bvody through the hitting motion in good detail.
- After running through a few dry hit swings and feeling that rotation, have a partner throw you some balls and you should feel that rotation much better.
