There is a lot more than people think when it comes to developing good hitting mechanics. One of the biggest problems we see in Fastpitch Softball hitters is they get out in front of the ball and come around it. In other words, they do not keep their swing compact and hands inside the ball. Their arms end up extending too quickly and the barrel of the bat will get to the softball before their hands do. This small detail in your hitting mechanics makes a huge impact on how hard and how far you hit the ball. Working with the Hands Inside Trainer will help you get back on the right track to hitting the ball further and harder.

The Hands Inside Trainer or H.I.T. is a simple, yet high effective training tool used by many Fastpitch Softball and Baseball players. The H.I.T. is a batting tee attachment that promotes the proper hand path during the swing. You can turn any tee into a swing trainer that will teach you muscle memory to keep your hands inside the ball. This device is a perfect tool to use no matter who you are. Great for left and right handed hitters, the H.I.T. is fully adjustable for different size bats and age groups.
Are you tired of replacing your entire batting tee because of the top part wearing out? Hitting off of the same tee can put a lot of wear and tear on the top where the ball sits.

An important part of fielding mechanics includes using two hands to field a ground ball. A main key to fielding mechanics is properly fielding and catching the ball with two hands. Using two hands secures the ball in the glove and allows for a quick and easy transfer of the ball from the glove to the hand to throw. The more you improve your fielding mechanics, the quicker you can get the ball out of the glove and throw it to first.
The Classic Pro GXT1 – Mizuno Training Mitt is the perfect tool to teach you to use two hands while fielding a ball. Great for baseball or softball, this padded leather mitt comfortably sits on your hand like your actual glove. The mitt is designed with an flat oblong shape. Even though mostly flat, the training mitt features padding to make the training experience more comfortable.
When fielding a ground ball wearing the Mizuno GXT1 Training Mitt, you are forced to get down and use both hands to field and keep the ball secure. If you fail to use two hands, the ball will bounce off the mitt. Repeated use of this training tool will significantly improve your fielding mechanics.
I can guarantee you this training tool is an essential device to advance your fielding mechanics. Repeated use of the Mizuno GXT1 Training Mitt will also accelerate your glove to hand transfer time. Start fielding balls the proper way with the GXT1 Mizuno Training Mitt and two hands!

This week I am featuring a product review on a very effective hitting station by Schutt Sports. I think everyone would agree the downside to batting practice is chasing and gathering up the balls afterwards. Most players would be outside practicing their hitting mechanics more often if they didn’t have to chase after every ball. You know hitting practice is especially tough when you don't have a partner with you to toss the ball or load one back up on the tee. Or maybe you're a coach that needs an easy to set up hitting station for pre-game warm. I have found the solution to your problems with the Schutt Sports Striker II.
The Striker II is an excellent portable hitting station that can be used by yourself to work on your hitting mechanics. This device can be attached to any chain-link fence at the softball park or even in your own back yard. Attached to the fence at your desired height, the Striker II extends outwards and provides you with a ball to hit that you will never have to chase. The baseball is securely attached to a rotating rope that allows it to spin when you hit the ball. Don't be alarmed, the baseball attached is great for softball players too. This way, the smaller ball will help a softball player focus in on hitting the sweet spot.
The Striker II is a great tool to enhance your hitting mechanics whether you are practicing or warming up for a game. It is very portable and can fit in almost any size equipment bag. Giving a player the ability to practice mechanics the easiest way possible makes me love the Striker II. Its almost effortless to go outside and get in a good hitting practice session using this convenient training aid. The best part is that you don't waste any time picking up balls, just keep hitting non-stop with no interruptions!
Tee work is critical when teaching players hitting mechanics. A batting tee is a very basic tool in an arsenal of hitting equipment. Tees provide the batter with the same scenario each time the ball is placed on the top of the tee. While this greatly improves muscle memory, it can get to be too monotonous and boring. When that gets to be too simple, there is a tool to use that will also improve hand-eye coordination. The Tee Stackers are a great tool to add to the regular tee work routine.
Tee Stackers are designed to stack softballs or baseballs on top of one another. First, put one ball on the tee then place one of the two Tee Stackers on top of the ball. Then place another ball on top of the tee stacker, and then repeat the process with the last Tee Stacker. The Tee Stackers attach to one another by a plastic clasp and string that you adjust around the stacker itself. Inside the package are instructions for different tee drills using the Tee Stackers. No matter how you use them, the Tee Stackers will give your hitter a greater edge in the field.
By placing the softball or baseball on top of the other, this forces the hitter to focus on one ball at a time to teach proper swing planes and hand-eye coordination. If your hitter is struggling with dropping their hands the Tee Stackers would be a great tool to use. With tee work being such a critical tool for hitting success, the tee stackers provide more advanced approach to tee work. I recommend using the Tee Stackers with more practiced hitters to get the most out of the drills.
