Hitting Drill/ Advanced
To really teach “throwing your hands to the ball”, we like to use a piece of 3/8″-1/2″ rope approximately 32″ long, the length of bat.
We set up small wiffle balls on a tee and have the girls throw their hands/ rope to the ball.
If done correctly the rope snaps straight out and makes contact with the wiffle ball.
