The Value Learning of Softball Hitting Skill
by: Marc Dagenais

A softball player that earns the admiration of the spectators outside the field is certainly a softball player that spends most of his time training and practicing just to become a good player. And one of the most admirable skills in the game softball is softball hitting. That’s why many softball players devote so much of their time and effort to sharpen this skill.

Learning softball hitting requires patience. This is because this skill can not be learned in an instant or just in a few days. In order to become a good hitter, you have to undergo several softball hitting drills. This skill also requires exercises and techniques that allow you to perform the exact skill to employ resulting to a better performance during actual play.

All exercise plans should be developed and put into practice as much as possible by all softball players. And in softball hitting, you must find a way on how you can become comfortable with your stance and movement. Being comfortable allows you to become relax. And when you are calm and relax, you can concentrate more that can lead to a great hit.

To become a good hitter, you must start by developing your muscles. However, developing muscles does not necessarily mean that you have to build up strong muscles. This is because in softball hitting, what you must have to develop primarily is muscle coordination. Although, having strong muscles are also important for you to create a powerful hit. Therefore, this requires you to learn the elements of turning and twisting in softball hitting.

After launching a good hit, the softball player on the other hand, must proceed as a base runner without delay. That’s why a player must also concentrate on instant softball hitting. After a full swing of the bat, the player must immediately prepare his arm and leg to run as fast as he can to reach the first base or the second base. This means that the player is not just a good hitter but a fast runner as well. Also, another important thing to remember after hitting the ball is that immediately forget the ball. What does this mean? This means that you don’t have to watch the ball as it flew, but concentrate right away on running. This is actually the common mistake of some softball hitters; they tend to stare at the ball where it goes.

It is the main duty of a softball coach to train his team in softball hitting. In addition, all the drills and trainings must concentrate on how the player can speed up his performance. The coach must also encourage the right attitude towards drills and practices. Let the players learn the value of determination, eagerness, patience, cooperation, and self-discipline.

The coach, on the other hand, must learn how to deal effectively with his team members. This greatly helps to employ every strategy smoothly. A greater chance of winning is in your hands. Therefore, when teaching softball hitting, you must do it with all your heart and knowledge.
