At D-BAT’s premier baseball training facilities one of the number #1 complaints is that my child is not batting to their full potential.
There can be many reasons for this, but D-BAT has pinpointed 3 very common batting mistakes we’ve seen in our private batting lessons and how to fix them:
1. Premature Wrist Roll
This occurs when a player rolls their wrist over before making contact with the ball, meaning the upper-hand is palm down and the upper-hand is palm up. The result: lots of weak grounders, particularly to the player’s pull side.
How to Fix It: Using a Swingaway device or a batting tee, isolate the upper body movement and practice swinging through the ball slowly, with the proper technique in place. Notice the difference in loft when the ball is hit prior to a wrist roll.
