Coaches use softball hitting drills at almost every practice.
However, humans are creatures of habits and we do the same thing the same way all the time.
Coaches are no different; we tend to use the same drills over and over. That’s especially true with softball hitting drills.
That can get pretty boring for the players and they don’t get as much as out of it.
Variety is not only important for motivation but also to throw a different learning stimulus to your athletes. They need to be challenged in order to improve.
To help you spice up your hitting practices, here are the softball hitting drills for you:
To develop bat control and short, quick swing. Stand approximately 22 feet away from the three fielders who position themselves two feet apart. Hit the ball using a short, quick, downward stroke. Hit the ball sharply with one or two hops (ground balls) to the fielders.
