Baseball Batting Drill - BatAction Training Tip from Nick Dixon,
Inventor of the BatAction Hitting Machine
Just a quick note to tell you about a great "Bat Speed" drill that you can do on the BatAction Hitting Machine, the "BRING-BY BAT SPEED DRILL".
Drill Name - "BRING-BY BAT SPEED DRILL".
Procedure - Use your normal BatAction powerband and height settings.
Directions - The batter hits the ball as it travels by the batter from the opposite direction than normal. The batter will allow the ball to unwind between swings and the ball will be going in reverse (toward the direction of the pitcher - coming from behind the batter). The bat must keep their eyes on the ball and hit it as it passes by. The difficulty level is high because the batter must have great bat speed, hand eye coordination, and timing to proform this drill.
Procedure - The batter will hit the ball as it comes from the direction of the catcher. The batter must have good bat speed to catch the ball and hit it onward as it travels forward by the batter. This is a pure top quality bat
Recommended Reps - It is recommeded that you do this drill at least 3 times a week. The batter should do 3 sets of 12 swings each.
