Real Players Hit With Wood

Let me say this up front… I do not like aluminum bats . . . but I’ll win with them. Practice with wood . . . and you’ll win with aluminum.

It’s really very simple. An aluminum bat swing can be mechanically flawed but still get results. Inflated averages & power numbers abound with huge aluminum sweet spots & tricked-out metal alloys!

But eventually bigger fields and better pitching eliminates many aluminum bat hitters well before High School . . . and it doesn’t have to be!

Allow me to explain . . . Much ofrepparttar physical side ofrepparttar 150872 game is about: BATSPEED HANDSPEED FOOTSPEED

Much of hitting is about: TIMING & BALANCE (Strength helps too)

Wood Bats feel head-heavy, with much smaller sweet spots so any imperfections in a swing are magnified. (Are you gettingrepparttar 150873 picture?)

Training with wood forcesrepparttar 150874 player to become mechanically precise & builds bat speed and strength. Additionally, wood trains hitters to really learnrepparttar 150875 strike zone and not swing at bad pitches (ever hit one offrepparttar 150876 end orrepparttar 150877 handle? . . . it hurts… and many times it breaks!)

To successfully swing with wood…

Triggerrepparttar 150878 hands earlier intorepparttar 150879 load position Keep your hands insiderepparttar 150880 ball (meaning hands closer torepparttar 150881 body throughoutrepparttar 150882 swing to make for a quick rotation torepparttar 150883 ball) Stick with it until your muscle memory acclimates to this new weapon. #1 Defined Dead Hands Kill Players! The first thing a hitter must do is take awayrepparttar 150884 pitcher's fastball. In general, that is a pitcher's best pitch. From Clemens, Johnson, Martinez & Maddux, torepparttar 150885 baddest pitcher in your league. Spotrepparttar 150886 fastball and you are a real pitcher. Ok, hitter what are you going to do about it? You’re going to crush it… that’s what!

Hands Start The Swing! Start your swing with your hands (it’s your timing mechanism). . . and you can time a jet or a fastball! Call it a trigger, load or hitch, it’s allrepparttar 150887 same. Just get some movement from your hands starting whenrepparttar 150888 pitcher separates his hands from his glove with a movement towardrepparttar 150889 back shoulder.
