- Player can stand anywhere on the field with a weighted bat.
- Hold bat straight up out in front of the body, hands should be about chest high, bat should be aligned with nose.
- Swing the bat through the hitting zone by snapping the wrists and then following through with the swing.
- Work on bat lag and extension
- Watch for good mechanics – which means elbow is in, head is still and vertical axis of rotation is maintained
