MySwing Training Drills

Drill Information

Equipment: Bat, Barrier (screen, net, fence), Tee, Baseballs

· Bat path
· Hip hinge
· Extension

Instructions: Position the barrier so it is barely touching your lower back once you are in your load. Take a swing with the ball on the tee. The bat should not touch the barrier.

Focus: Focus on staying inside and through the baseball without hitting the screen or net. It is important to maintain your hip hinge to create space for your arms and bat to follow a proper path.

Importance: By putting the barrier behind you this encourages you to maintain a proper hip hinge throughout your swing and a high finish to promote proper bat path.

Common Mistakes: Coming around the ball, losing posture, pushing the hands, not finishing the swing.

Variations: To increase difficulty the drill can be done with front toss, overhand batting practice, or off the machine. To decrease difficulty you can remove the tee and take dry swings.

How to Analyze a MySwing Report

Pitch Analysis from the MySwing Baseball Software

"A hitter should use these drills if their bat path is not long through the zone (doesn’t get on plane with the pitch early). In this example this hitter is short in the zone by pushing their hands instead of turning the barrel. This hurts adjustability and requires precise timing to make contact."
