The simple 3 step hitting approach outlaid on the following page was the same I used to successfully play 17 years of professional baseball in 3 different continents. Due to a lack of speed and defensive skills, I was forced to rely on hitting to keep my spot in the line up. This simple 3 step method will help ball players of all ages to succeed at the plate. To find out the full details of this method along with other hitting drills, tips and programs that helped me throughout my career as a professional hitter, join The Hitting Project.

SNEAK PREVIEW: THE BOTTOM HAND SERIES

HOT HITTING DRILL

TOP 7 REASONS TO HIT WITH ONE HAND

[1] To increase strength & power by increasing the workload for each hand. Especially when a hitter is using his game-day bat. If you can handle your game-day bat with one hand you will increase strength when you return to using 2 hands. Our members hitting drill The Bat Speed Booster is a prime example of how swinging your game-day bat with one hand can improve bat speed and power in a short amount of time.
[2] Expose any weakness you have in either hand. Including the most common hitting flaws, such as rolling over, pulling off the baseball, dipping, lazy barrel and not staying through the baseball.
[3] Creates a more balanced swing, as apposed to one hand dominating the other.
[4] Teaches a hitter the importance of hitting the ball with backspin and a good hitting approach.
[5] Reinforces to a hitter to stay relaxed with his grip and not to muscle up on the baseball. Gripping the bat too tight will cause a hitter to tense his muscles and slow down his swing.
[6] Explains to the hitter how the upper and body work together in the swing: especially with the top hand and back drive leg connection and staying in your legs.
[7] Quickens bat speed as the hitter is forced to keep a short path to the baseball.
