Part 10 – Hit For Power Against Power Pitchers – 20 Minute LASERS Crash Course: The only chance you’ve got to hit a power pitcher is to let your subconscious mind take over your swing. Shut down your mind and open your eyes, you don’t have time think

Laser Strap™ Hitting
  • Preparing for a hard throwing pitcher: When in the on-deck circle practice your LASER Blast swing path you mastered in Steps 2 and 3. Especially when you’re expecting an up-and-in/deep fastball.
  • Preparing for low and outside: When in the on-deck circle practice your LASER Whip swing path you mastered in step 4. When expecting to hit the ball low or and away you’ll need more more bat whip to hit for power in extended contact zones. Remember to stay in legs and use a top-hand release swing to reach the extreme low and outside.
  • Preparing for a mistake pitch: 20 Minute LASERS has made you into a complete hitter. You possess the skills to hit the toughest pitch locations, everything in between will be a piece of cake. When you see a hanging slider/breaking-ball and/or average middle/belt-high fastball in a game it will look like a beach ball.

For the final round you can take of your training aid and work on hitting balls in different locations. This video shows the advanced/condensed version of 20 Minute LASERS, using a heavy/light bat combination.

1. Hitting the Hard Stuff

  • LASER Drills: LASER Blast and LASER Beam (top-hand)
  • What you’ll learn: Mechanics to hit for power in deep contact zones by exploding with your core and staying connected at contact (no extension).
  • Game-Day Implementation: Prepares you for when you don’t have time to think as the ball is up you fast. Up-inside-fastball against a hard throwing pitcher.
We recommend (not essential) to minimize swing movement for LASER Blast drills to isolate your core power. However, you can train with a high elbow/leg-kick for LASER Blast Drills if you choose our training aid accommodate for all types of swings (simply adjust your Sport Precise™ Band to meet your training requirements).

After ‘X’ amount of swings Fast Twitch/Muscle-Memory will kick in and you’ll do this naturally in a game. The result… you’re a complete hitter with now swing holes. Congratulations you’ve made the LASER team.

Avoid unnaturally lifting the bat post contact, as you’ll knock your head off the ball, for deep contact zones we recommend to use a short and flat swing plane (the high contact zone provides the lift for you). Avoid releasing your top-hand with deep contact zones as it becomes virtually impossible to hit this pitch if you do. If you have always utilize a top-hand release swing, think of this as an isolation drill for deep contact/top-hand power. You can return to your normal swing after you complete the drill. If you choose to do so you can revert back to this technique when facing hard throwing pitchers and/or hitting with a 2-strike batting count in a game (where you’ve limited time to react).

2. Getting Out of a Hole

  • LASER Drills: Combination of LASER Whip, LASER Blast and LASER Beam (top-hand)
  • What you’ll learn: Mechanics to hit adjust to late movement, combining bat speed and extension.
  • Game-Day Relevance: Learn how to hit when you’re behind in the batting count and facing the best hard throwing pitchers who can also locate their off-speed pitches. Example, hitting a hard/late-breaking slider with a 2-strike batting count.
Preparing for low and outside: When in the on-deck circle practice your LASER Whip swing path you mastered in step 4. When expecting to hit the ball low or and away you’ll need more more bat whip to hit for power in extended contact zones. Getting Out Of A Hole LASER Drills: Combination of LASER Whip, LASER Blast and LASER Beam (top-hand) What you’ll learn: Mechanics to hit adjust to late movement, combining bat speed and extension.

Remember to stay in legs and use a top-hand release swing to reach the extreme low and outside. Your bottom/lead hand plays a vital role for hitting late-breaking/hard/down-and-way pitch locations. Your front arm/shoulder is located in a better spot to take over the swing, especially for extreme low and outside pitches. In order to isolate and build strength in your bottom hand – release your top hand on your follow through. Do this as your back shoulder feels-pressure/gets-fully-extended.

3. Hitting a Mistake Pitch

  • LASER Drills: Combination of LASER Whip and LASER Blast
  • What you’ll learn: Skills to identify and capitalize on a pitchers mistake, without over-swinging.
  • Game-Day Implementation: Hitting in “aggressive swing” batting counts (example 3 balls-1 strike). Belt-High hanging breaking ball or below average fastball.
