Baseball Tips On Hitting--Number One Out Of The Hundreds!

To me, it's probably number one on the long list of baseball tips on hitting. Being direct and short to the ball should be at the top or very close to the top of anybody's list. This article will clearly show you its importance, how to be direct to the baseball and what a baseball hitter must definitely avoid doing. Along with keeping the front side closed when hitting, this should be at the top of your list as a baseball hitter who is striving to be successful.

The front elbow should be pointed downward when you START your swing and NOT toward the pitcher. Many baseball players were brought up constantly hearing to keep their swing level. Too many players have heard this too many times and they erroneously level out their swing at the very beginning. This is not the proper baseball hitting concept. Yes, you should strive to have a level swing. But it should be level ONLY at the point of contact!

Not being direct to the ball, is a very common baseball hitting problem for the majority of weak hitters. If the front elbow is pointing toward the pitcher when you start your swing, it will create a slight loop in your swing, making you a fraction of a second later to the ball. If a fast ball takes less than a second to get to the catcher's mitt, you simply cannot afford to lose a valuable fraction of a second. A fraction of a second is an eternity when it comes to successful baseball hitting. This fraction of a second can very well be the difference between hitting a seed or being late and missing the pitch entirely.

The distance between two points is a straight line and this applies perfectly to the baseball swing. Let's call these two points point A and B. When hitting, you cannot go from to go from point A, where you are loaded up, to point B, the point where you make contact, unless you do it in a straight line. The only way this is possible is if you have the front elbow pointing downward at the start of the swing. If the front elbow is pointing toward the pitcher at the very start of the swing, you are not going from A to B in a straight line. The palms of the hands should be one up and one down only at the point of contact and not sooner. If you are not being direct to the ball, start now as it is one of the best baseball tips on hitting you will ever learn. You will be short to the ball and your hitting will improve immediately. Please keep the front elbow pointing down at the very beginning of your swing and you will benefit tremendously!
