This week is part 2 of a great hitting clinic by UCLA coaching legend Sue Enquist. Produced By Gary Leland
We rejoin UCLA Coach Sue Enquist for part two of her hitting clinic from the National Coaches Clinic. If you haven’t seen part one please take a few minutes and watch it here.
Sue moves into explaining bat lag and that it is measuring when the barrel comes into the zone and it is also the last time that the barrel and the hands are even. Hands should always be above the barrel on contact and they should be in front of your center of gravity. Move your weight off the backside, and no matter where the pitch comes in the elbow should be above the hands and the hands above the ball.
A common misconception in batting is that batters should swing down on the high pitch or up on a low pitch. Your swing should always be the same, working your arms independently. Sue also shares that you want a slight bend in the arms at contact for maximum force. At toe touch all great hitters come together.
Finally Sue provides players and coaches’ step by step instructions on how every hitter should move through their hitting motion for maximum force at contact. She also provides drills that are sure to improve your hitting. We are thrilled to bring you the full clinic from Sue Enquist and hope you see the improvement in your hitters.
