Baseball Hitting Drills

Coming up with new ideas for baseball hitting drills can sometimes be a challenge.

I have two tips to contribute.

When working the bunt with a reluctant player, I have them put a glove on the hitting hand (lefty glove for right-hander) and reach

out , as if they were holding a bat, and catch the ball with the gloved hand over the plate. This teaches them confidence in putting

the bunt down with a bat in their hands.

A baseball hitting drill I use is to take wiffle golf balls and standing just outside of the strike zone, away from the bat’s reach,

hold the ball as high as I can and drop them into the strike zone.

You will be surprised how hard it is to hit. It teaches the batter to WATCH the ball.
