  • 1. Softball hitting methods revealed By Marc Dagenais, MHK, CSCS, ChPC http://www.softballperformance.com Hitting someone’s balls (it can be hard or soft) may cause you in trouble that will result to imprisonment or even to state of financial punishment, but in playing softball (the real softball) it is legal and fine. Softball is one of the most favorite games in the U.S of America. In playing softball, hitting is one of the most important skills a softball player should learn. Learning proper softball hitting method is not as easy as walking in a park with a balloon on your hand while eating dirty ice-cream. In softball hitting, choosing of bat that you will use in hitting is very important. Some softball players prefer using heavy and big bats and some prefer using the standard light bat. Using big and heavy bat will definitely hamper you from giving the softball a high-speed good shot. These are some techniques a softball player should learn enabling a softball team to win inevitably. There are 4 aspects in making your softball hitting a good shot. Stance is the first out of the 4 aspects in making your softball hitting a successful one. Many softball players make use of different stance because we have no standard stance to go after in any softball game. A softball player should stand in his most relaxing softball hitting posture. You should twist your knees and do not make your weight be carried by your whole body. A softball player should not keep his feet not too far yet not too near. This distance should be more than your shoulders span. Grip. A nice grip in your bat will unleash a good hit to the ball. In gripping your bat, try to make it sure that you are holding it not too loose yet not so tight. You should hold your bat in a way that you will feel more relaxed and suited without being lax. Proper positioning of hands will help a softball player to hold the bat suitably in order to have more power to swing the bat. Stride. Appropriate timing is required when taking your pace in softball hitting. Keep focused on the movement of the ball and facilitate suitable timing. When the pitcher throws the ball, elevate your stance and stride precisely. Mental and body coordination with discipline is important in having a perfect stride. There are two kinds of trigger. Slightly picking up the front foot and inward slight turn a softball player could use these triggers at the same time but it requires full body coordination. The use of these triggers is to match the pitchers movement. A softball hitter should follow the move of the pitcher and get focused on the speed on the direction of the ball.
  • 2. Swing. In preparing yourself in hitting the ball, you should swing not only your hands but you should also swing your arms, shoulders and trunks. Again full mental and body coordination is needed. Great timing brings all your energy together producing more power and speed in softball hitting. Every softball player has the capability to develop those techniques. What matters most is to keep you focused and learn adequate training with discipline.
