If your hitter struggled to make contact to all fields last season check out our version of the 3 tee drill series & how it can help them develop a consistent bat path
We encounter hundreds of clients a week here at Baseball Rebellion. Each with their own individual program set up to ensure they maximize their development.
Different athletes require different cues and drills to help them learn. Each day we post a different drill that was used in lessons to help a certain hitter achieve the change they are looking for. This article reviews each drill and explains how they can help your hitter.
Resisting rotation is a major part of timing. A hitter pushing off of their back foot can cause early rotation and flying open. Make sure you know exactly where your hitter's back foot is throughout the stride. 👊https://t.co/5umcfPaKg5 pic.twitter.com/GuVmAbMwzo

Direction and deceleration are major factors in the swing. This drill forces hitters to brace up and create proper direction while remaining aggressive. Try it off the tee, front toss, or even off a machine! 👊⚾https://t.co/bxWWTzW5El pic.twitter.com/e5zXTdoZrK

Early upper body rotation can lead to a hitter "leaving" the bat. Meaning, their upper body is turning so far in front of the bat that the bat drags behind. Make sure your hitter understands how to hold their load throughout the stride! ⚾💪https://t.co/ILGudk5LFX pic.twitter.com/6ctdJuTkvZ

A hitter's forward move allows them to create better rhythm and timing in the swing. Without one, aggression usually leads to the hitter rotating open too soon. Putting the tee exaggeratedly in front can help them feel the forward move. 💪https://t.co/W8usioqs6n pic.twitter.com/j5m9IwMQsi
