Coaching Youth Baseball: The Closed Eye Baseball Hitting Drill

Closed Eye Hitting Drill

This is one of my favorite drills. The hitter assumes a comfortable and correct stance each time. Then the hitter closes the eyes. The coach or Hit2win or Target Trainer hitting stick coaching trainer holder will change the strike height and location each time. A verbal command is given, the hitter opens the eyes and hits the ball correctly wherever it is located. The batter must use the correct swing to hit inside, middle, and away pitches. The holder will also locate the ball out of the strikezone. Any ball above the hands or on the ground is a ball and should not be hit.

Suggested - 15 Swings - 3 Times a week.
