Youth Softball Drills - Drop Drill Hitting

Great drill to help increase bat speed.

The hitter takes his/her normal batting stance facing a fence or net that is about 6-8 feet away. The coach stands about 1-1/2 steps in front of the hitter so that the ball will drop directly in the contact zone out in front of the hitter. The coach simply drops the ball in the contact zone, the hitter must see the ball and hit it before it hits the ground with a level swing and proper stride. Begin dropping the ball from over the head and slowly begins dropping the ball from lower heights.
