Great Baseball Hitting Stations

Our practice has started here in ALabama. We are doing a lot of hitting station work along with some short batting cage hitting.

The stattions we used today were:

High Tee Drill: The batting Tee is placed on two cement blocked and raised as high as I can get it. This makes the batter work the arms and muscle groups. It is a great drill to work the top hand and to develop a soild swing.

Hands Back Hitter - The Hands Back Batting Trainer is a great teaching and practice tool. We had two stations with it today and yesterday. The kids work in pairs. Hit 6 and rotate. The ball is lauched and this mechanical tee launches the ball. The batter must keep the hands back.

Front Toss - A coach font tossed with location specific drill. Each batter hit a set of 8 on the inner third and outer third twice before goimg into the batting cage. A plate is used and the ball is tossed from 12 feet. A screen is placed at the target location to both sides. The goal is to hit line drives. The coach would vary speeds away to simulate a curve ball. The batter must hit the ball where it is pitched, show a sense of staying back, and excelerate through the ball!

Good luck, til next time, Nick
