Hitting Camps

        

Objectives:

  • Establish dynamic and powerful hitting mechanics that are simple to understand and repeat.
  • Focus on improving hitting skills including driving the ball the opposite way and adjusting to the inside pitch and breaking balls.
  • Emphasis will be placed on improving bat speed, improving ball exit speed, and hitting the ball with proper ball flight.
  • Develop the mental approach to hitting to get the most out of each at bat.

 

Areas of Instruction:

  • Beginning players will participate in hitting drills to establish and refine their hitting mechanics.
  • Established players will work through drills to improve their hitting skills starting from basic level drills and moving toward advanced techniques.
  • Tee work, front toss, and live batting practice drills will be used to improve each hitter's skill level.
  • Instruction to communicate the mental approach to hitting.
  • Total body, explosive training.

Ball Exit Speed is how Elite Hitters are Measured

Why is bat speed and ball exit speed so important?  An increase of 5 mph in bat speed leads to 25 more feet of ball flight. 
In our winter camps last year, we had an average gain of 7 mph with our players.  

MLB Network's Peter Gammons shared the following regarding this year's Major League Hitters:

Hitters with a ball exit speed of 100-104 mph had a batting average of .561 on the balls they hit that hard.  

Amazingly, balls hit harder than 110 mph translated into a .726 batting average.

It's why ball exit speed matters!
