The following is a quote from our article The Top 10 Batting Average Killers

Flying open too early with your front shoulder is a guaranteed batting average killer! The best and fastest way to improve your game day baseball swing is to let the baseball travel deeper in the contact zone and work on hitting the baseball up the middle.

The #1 Cause Of Outs In Baseball

If you’re unable to stay closed with your baseball swing and keep your head on the baseball you’ll be an inconsistent hitter.

 

How many times have you rolled over and hit a ground ball when swinging at the outside pitch? Pulling off the baseball will be the number one way you get yourself out this season. However you’re not alone,  pulling off the baseball is common all the way from little league to the big leagues.

 

Now that we have your attention, the following baseball swing drills and game day hitting tips will prevent you from pulling out of your swing too early this season.

What Causes Bad Swing Habits?

Improve Your Game Day Baseball Swing

  • Lunging: It’s vital you’re not afraid to let the baseball travel deep in the hitting zone before making your decision to swing, especially with a pitch lower in the hitting zone. Starting your swing too early (as the ball is half way from the pitching plate to home plate) will cause you to lunge at the baseball.
  • Bad Hitting approach: Over-swinging, trying to pull the baseball or hit a home run will trigger you to pull out of your baseball swing. The best hitting approach is to stay relaxed and hit the ball up the middle or opposite field.
  • Rolling Over: Rolling over on the outside pitch will cause you to hit a weak ground ball.
  • Confidence: Your sub conscious mind plays a powerful role when you hit.  Lacking confidence will cause you to rush your swing, fly open to early with your front shoulder and to lunge at the baseball. Improved game day performance comes from confidence. To improve confidence you need to practice game day specific hitting drills.
  • Tracking the baseball: When you don’t see the baseball out of the pitcher’s hand will cause you to rush your swing and lunge at the baseball.
  • Nervousness: When you’re too nervous in the batters’ box will slow down your bat speed and to jump at the baseball.
  • Front Foot Stride: When your front lands too open this will cause your upper body to pull off the baseball.

Baseball Swing Drills To Stay Closed

The Best Drills For A Consistent Baseball Swing

LASER STRAP FRONT TOSS

THE HIPS CONTROL THE UPPER HALF: There is too much focus on the upper half when hitting. The engine room is the core, more specifically the hips. If a hitter can get into a good lower half position then this will have a positive influence on the upper half of the body and the overall swing. The Laser Strap forces the hitter to use the hips to generate the swing, thus taking the weight off the back foot via momentum.

THE CORE CONTROLS THE UPPER HALF OF THE SWING

 

Your back foot is one of the best indicators for your baseball swing. It’s vital you rotate your back foot from your hips, if you’re lazy with your back foot rotation the rest of your baseball swing will break down.

 

  • Back foot rotation will allow your upper body to get into the best hitting position.
  • Proper back foot rotation will give you more bat speed by generating your baseball swing from your hips.
  • Prevent dipping and spinning: Too much weight on your back foot at contact will trigger a dip you swing and you’ll spin-off the baseball before contact. This will cause you to swing and miss, pop up or hit a weak ground ball.

 

In the past back foot rotation was difficult to train. That’s why TheHittingProject.com created The Laser Strap Bat Speed Trainer.
