Mastering Your Stance Helps Your Perfect Your Softball Hitting
by: Marc Dagenais

Softball is a kind of team sports that requires different skills. Although it seems simple when you watch it, it may be complicated sometimes especially when you lack the skills in playing it effectively. Aside from pitching, fielding, catching, throwing and running, softball hitting is one of the important skills that every softball player must learn. Actually, it has an important role in winning and so not only the hitter should learn at least the basics of softball hitting.

As a softball hitter, your bat will become your partner in improving your softball hitting skill. Thus, you have to make sure that you posses the right softball bat. Choosing the right softball bat doesn’t necessarily mean that it is expensive. It can be less expensive as long as it is made of high quality of materials. Also, it is very important to pick a softball bat which has the right size and weight so that you cannot have difficulty in hitting the ball once you are in middle of your game. Purchasing a bat is one of your investments when you are into the sport of softball thus you have to make the right choice in order to prevent wasting your money.

Aside from choosing the perfect bat for you, you should also learn the concepts of doing the right swing, stride and stance. These three terms also play an important role in taking your softball hitting skill to the next level. Thus, it is very essential to incorporate some exercises that will help you to make the right swing, stride and stance in your training. Swing refers to the swinging of you bat once the ball is near your softball bat. Stride is the timing to make the perfect swing. Timing is very important in softball hitting in order to know when and where to do a perfect swing.

Stance is your position while you are waiting for the pitcher to release the ball. There are different stances you can use while you are hitting the ball but make sure to choose to where you are most comfortable with. This means that you have to use a stance which will give you the air of confidence and the power to hit the ball from the point of release. Just like the other skills in softball, learning the perfect stance for you takes time. Thus, you have to spend enough time to learn such skill.

There is no such perfect stance in softball hitting. It is just a matter of mastery. So, it is not possible to change your stance when you are already in the middle of the field. You have to stick with your stance because this is the position where you are used to. Of course, you can change your stance just like you can change your softball hitting style but you can only do this after your game or many months before your actual game. Changing your stance in the time of the game will just ruin all of your plans and will affect your over all performance.
