MySwing Training Drills

Drill Information

Equipment: Bat, Tee, Baseballs

· Kinematic Sequence
· Hip hinge
· Bat path
· Turning the barrel

Instructions: Starting from the toe touch position, take a swing and stop at contact.

Focus: Focus on starting your swing with the proper sequencing of pelvis, torso, arms, and bat. This will make it easier to stop your bat just after contact.

Importance: Proper kinematic sequencing will allow you to have better control over your bat path and control of your barrel. This will also help maximize power output of your swing.

Common Mistakes: Improper sequencing, not stopping near contact.

Variations: This drill can also be done off of front toss or batting practice to increase difficulty. Additionally, alternating 1 rep of sequencing to contact drill with normal swing increases difficulty as well. This drill is also good for the coach and hitter to check the hitter’s position at contact making sure they are in a strong and stable position.

How to Analyze a MySwing Report

Pitch Analysis from the MySwing Baseball Software

"A hitter should use the Sequencing to Contact Drill if their kinematic sequence is out of order. You want the peaks to occur in the order of pelvis (red), torso/ribcage (green), lead arm (blue), trail arm (purple), and bat (yellow). In this example the hitter is leading their swing with their arms followed by their torso and then their pelvis. As a result, they need to use sequencing drills to help keep the upper body back while initiating the swing with their pelvis."
