The truth is that most young hitters who struggle to generate bat speed are typically 2-3 swing tweaks away from adding an extra 4-5 MPH, in some cases 10 MPH, to their swing.
Most hitters don’t intuitively understand how to generate bat speed. These hitters are written off at an early age as untalented or poor hitters. They hit far down in the line-up, lack confidence, and usually want to walk away from the game at an early age.
Back in the day kids would turn to other sports, but now they turn to video games. It’s really sad to watch.
What would an extra 4-5 MPH, or even 10 MPH, of bat speed do for a hitter?
For every extra mile per hour of bat speed you add to your swing then the ball will travel an extra 6-7 feet in distance.
Hitting more home runs is great, but that’s not really where extra bat speed pays off.
When a hitter adds extra bat speed to their swing…
The ground balls that were easy outs last season are now base hits that fly past the diving infielders. The weak line drives in the gap turn into doubles and triples. The fastballs they were late on last season are now base hits to right field.
The used to be 7-9 hitter in the line up now becomes the 5 or 6 hitter at the beginning of the season. By the end of the season they may climb even further up the line up.
You need to try this out. It helped me go from below mediocre in my line up to batting 3 and 4th consistently.
