Baseball Hitting Instruction: The STEP IN & HIT DRILL - "STOPS A HITTER FROM STEPPING OUT"

The "Step in and Hit" baseball hitting drill is used to teach a hitter not to step out or "into the bucket". The drill works very well in stopping this common flaw.
  • The batter begins the drill standing farther away from the machine than normal. This starting position allows the batter to take two steps inward before swinging the bat.
  • The batter step first with the back foot and then with the front foot. When the front "lands" the batter attacks the ball.
  • The drill may be performed with the ball moving or in the "still position".
  • The batter takes time to reset and observe all body movement before and after the swing. It is sometimes good to have the hitter freeze after the swing to see if the proper finish position is achieved.
The batter should make sure to make contact with the ball component and not the shaft.
