Get More Bat Speed with High Tee Drill

Approach focused high-ball hitting drill

  • Focus on hitting a line drive back up the middle of the hitting cage and keep your head down throughout the entire swing. Don’t try to pull the ball!
  • Try to hit the ball with backspin and watch the trajectory of the ball. If the ball tails it means your dropping the barrel head too much at contact. This is caused by a weak top-hand when hitting the high ball and weak bottom-hand when hitting the low ball.
  • Keep your swing short and hands-inside-the-baseball (back elbow close to your body) to improve bat speed.
  • Stay balanced on the follow through. Falling off-balanced is caused from over-swinging or pulling off the baseball.
