Purpose: To improve the Hitter’s technique so that his front arm doesn’t exit outward during the swing

Procedure: A player stands facing the fence. To measure the appropriate distance the fence, he touches the barrel of his bat to the fence and holds it parallel the ground with the knob of the bat touching his navel .The player should remember this distance from the fence and assume a hitting stance. He should move through five components of an effective hitting technique. If the player’s bat hits the fence is extending his front arm which is a technique flaw. The player should continue softball hitting drill until he develops the proper technique of keeping his front elbow bent and hands Close to his body as he swings at an imaginary ball.
