Purpose: To learn how to drive through the ball, and consistently hit line drives when softball hitting. By hitting off the tee three to four feet from the net you don’t always get a clear picture of how to hit the ball. With this drill, players learn how to consistently hit line drives.

Procedure: Set a ball on a tee about 30 feet in front of the net and then place a home plate behind the tee so you can adjust your stance in relation to the plate. Hit line drives into the back of the net.

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).
