Many players get themselves into trouble at the plate because they’re simply not ready to hit.
They step in the batter’s box thinking, “if it’s a strike, I’m going to swing” instead “it’s going to be a strike right down the plate and I’m going to be ready”.
When a hitter is:
hoping to hit the ball instead of knowing.
swinging to make HARD SOLID contact instead to NOT miss.
competing with a goal to see the ball as well as possible….
Then they’re setting themselves up for success.
Train your mind to be ready to hit and you’ll find your self-showing up on time on the fastball while having the ability to adjust to the offspeed or breaking ball.
Easier said than done? Sure. But by competing with this principle in mind, you’ll not only pick up the pitcher more accurately, but you’ll also be in a position to take a more aggressive hack.
Just another advantage for you.
