If you’re having trouble catching up to the fastball, ESPECIALLY the HIGH HEAT, it’s probably because of two things.
You’re not starting your load early enough. - Often times a hitter runs into trouble when they get to the point of contact too late because the'y’ve initiated their speration and stride way to late.
You have too much head movement - When the head moves the eyes moves. If you wanna make 90 mph look like 85mph, slow your feet and head down. If you wanna make 90 mph look like 95 mph…speed your feed up.
Here’s what you need to be thinking about.
Have the right approach and:
Think driving the ball up the middle.
Think slowing your stride down. Especially if you have a leg kick.
Think keeping your head as still as possible. (Head on a swivel)
Key point: When you slow your feet and head down, you slow the pitch down.
The slower the game feels, the better you’ll perform.
Takes practice, sure…which is why repitition is key.
