Purpose: To develop proper wrist action at contact for softball hitting.

Procedure: The hitter kneels with the back knee bent. Set the T for a high pitch. The player uses a bat and hits down on the top half of the ball using a tomahawk action. The player can perform the same action with one hand using a very small bat (a fisherman’s club is the right size and shape).
