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