The Fundamentals of Softball Hitting

If you are into the sport of softball, you should aim to learn every aspect of the game so that you can be familiar with the different skills you should learn. But, as your softball coach always says, softball hitting is one of the important skill that every softball player must know. This means that even if you will not become the softball hitter of your team, hitting is the very first skill that you have to master. This is because softball hitting can give you the chance to dominate the game.

However, softball hitting is not a simple thing. To make a perfect hit doesn’t only mean simply swinging your bat then hitting the ball. There are other important things that you should learn when you will engage to practice softball hitting drills. You must learn the aspects included in eye coordination, focus and equilibrium. There is no denying that there are lots of softball hitting tips which you can follow in your training but the mention three softball hitting tips is the common tips which famous softball coaches and players follow in order to reach their success in softball hitting.

Before you begin practicing the varied styles in hitting the ball, you must learn first the concept of focus. Focus is the secret in making a perfect and powerful hit. It is true that softball hitters sometimes miss the ball but you can actually avoid committing such mistake. To make sure that you will hit the ball once the pitcher releases it, you have to maintain your focus on the ball and on the pitcher. You can do this by keeping your head still and maintain the proper angle of direction. This is very helpful to determine the speed, vector and spin of the ball. You can increase your focus by practicing drill which target concentration, visual and mental focus.

The next thing you should learn is the proper coordination of the eyes and the hands. This is an important skill you need to master in effective softball hitting. Your eyes will dictate your hands and arms when and where to move and hit. Your eyes will gather date such as the speed and direction of the ball and then send signal to the brain which will dictate your hand to hit the ball only in the right direction and with a proper timing. If you are poor in eye-hand coordination, you have fewer chances of making outstanding scores.

Lastly, if you want to become good in your softball hitting, you need to master equilibrium or body balance. If you have the proper balance, you have more chances of making a powerful hit using your full power and force. The principle under this softball hitting tip is that your weight will absorb the impact of the ball as the ball and the bat meets in contact. Because of equilibrium, the player is able to hit the ball with his full force and power without getting off balanced.
