Purpose: ln honor of the Mariners Edgar Martinez, this activity teaches bat speed in accordance with the “sweet spot.” softball hitting techniques. should be sound to be a good hitter

Procedure: This drill will need a Bat, donut or Bratt’s Bat, and balls. Slide the donut onto the bat. Now use soft toss, the goal is to make solid contact on the “sweet spot,” The donut serves as a guide while building up strength in the hands and wrists. It’s also a great challenge. You can also try this with the Bratt’s Bat (youth length/weight) and tennis balls. Instead of hitting with the donut younger hitters can tape over the “sweet spot” on a regular bat, so they know where to properly hit the ball.
