Re: Re: Re: hitting an inside pitch
> I find the only way to hit a inside pitch is tobring ur hands closer to ur body, like today in my game i had one "in on my hands" and in-side outed it to right field...whatever works huh
> > Hope i helped!
> > Troy troy...i agree that in some cases the ball can get in on you to quick and that as a defensive tactic you can bring the hands in and "inside-out" the ball to the opposite field........but let's be clear about one thing: this is not the IDEAL way to hit an inside pitch, at least for power...believe me, mcgwire dit not hit 70 homeruns using this technique.....to hit the inside pitch for power, (1) you have to contact the ball in front of the plate (2) the bat angle needs to be aprox 30 to 45 degrees and (3) your hands need to make a semi-circular path (which precludes using fence drill mechanics)....
> I agree with points (1) (2) (3) above absolutely 100%. This is the only way you can hit an inside pitch with consistancy and power. One other point however, (4) you need to stay square to the plate. DO NOT step towards 3rd base (right handed batter). The only outcome of performing steps (1) (2) (3) and NOT (4) would be one heck of a long, hard hit foul ball, or a blooper in the infield, because your going to hit it off the end of the bat.
