Hitters Stop Flying Open With These Two Cues

Written By: Garrett Gordon

Front Shoulder Flying Open During The Swing

As a hitting instructor, I have had many people reach out to me about drills to help their hitters stop spinning off the ball. First, we have to understand why this happens. Secondly, we have to understand how to correct it. 

I’ve used various drills for this problem to help hitters. For this issue, I use these two specific “cues” to stop them from spinning off the ball.

Keeping things simple with these two cues will make your hitters more efficient in the cage and on the field. 

Flying Open Cue #1- “Back Shoulder to Second Baseman”

Without Rack Bat

Flying Open Cue #2- "Front Elbow Up"
