This drill is a great way to ensure that batters become aware of the importance in using the lower body to increase power in their swing.
The batter will step up to bat with their front foot on the back line of the batters box
The batter will take a step with their back foot and then with their front foot to end close to their usual stance in the batters box.
As the batter takes her last step the coach will soft toss the ball.
The batter sets her hands quickly and takes her swing.
This should not be a slapping motion. The batter just has to be quick enough with her footwork and setting her hands to hit the ball at her usual stance.
