Purpose:  To improve bat speed. Check this for softball hitting tips to watch for.

Procedure: Place a chair or short ladder in the batter’s box opposite the hitter. Your partner will stand on the chair and instruct you to Stride. Upon complying your stride, yom partner will drop the ball into the hitting zone from above. You must explode your hips to generate the bar speed necessary to make contact.

Due to the difficulty of this drill, I wouldn’t recommend it for beginners they may become quickly discouraged.
