Drill 1: Stop At Contact Drill

Friday, Apr. 12th 2013

This is the first drill that we recommend when a hitter starts working with Insider Bat.   This drill will help the player to understand what it feels like to get in to a proper hitting position.  This also provides an excellent diagnostic opportunity for the player and/or coach.  Key checkpoints at contact are:

  1. Palm/up – palm/down
  2. Power L in back arm
  3. Top hand and shoulder
  4. Slight flex in front arm
  5. Back knee to ball (power L)
  6. Firm front side
