Although constant softball hitting practice is very important, when carried it out the improper way is useless. There are actually techniques behind an explosive hit one must be guided.

If you want to go beyond the border of your dream and become a great softball hitter, you can master these 7 techniques for fast pitch softball hitting and you are certainly a few steps away to achieving your goal. Also make sure to equip yourself with the right attitudes towards practicing such as self-discipline, hard work, determination, and passion to what you are doing. You will most likely need them as you carry on to your softball hitting practice.

Jump into the Box

Some softball players are having difficulty when it comes to finding their own proper stance comes softball hitting. The truth is it can be done so easily, you just have to jump right into the box and observe how you land and that can be your stance. You can observe the following when you land from a jump: knees are bent, your feet are slightly wider than your shoulders, you are on balance, and you are bent slightly forward from the waist.

Door Knocking Knuckles

When it comes to having the best grip, observe how you knock on a door. Your knuckles are lined up. When you grip the bat this way, you will attain a freer and quicker swing.

Big Toe

This is when you start to swing; you will be reminded of a soft step with weight landing on your big toe. The step should not be more than six inches and the weight is like the way you step in your big toe. This should tell you again in keeping your front foot closed.

Squish the Bug

When doing softball hitting, make sure that your arms, big muscles in your hips and torso are all working together. This should be a firm twisting on the ball of your back foot.

Karate Punch

Just like in karate, you need to take the barrel of your bat right to the ball. You have to make sure that your lower hand would be a snap from the elbow straight out. On the other hand, your top hand should go directly in the direction of the ball so that it can hit the ball.

The Red Zone

To achieve maximum impact with the ball colliding to the particular spot of the bat, you should hit the ball out in front, where your hands and arms are completely extended. This is also called as the hitting zone or success zone.

Follow Through

This is when after having a contact with the ball; you have to make sure that you are still on a straight balanced position. Don’t immediately release the bat or hold it back.
