>>> One drill I have used with success is putting the baseball on the T and have each batter hit the ball off the T with the knob of the bat. This requires great hand/eye coordination, gets the bottom hand to lead and promotes a more patient and confident swing. They have a great deal of trouble at first, but after they get the idea, things quickly improve. <<<
Do you encourage your batters not to use the arms to accelerate the knob? I see no problem if the batter keeps the hands back and allows shoulder rotation to bring them in a circular path to contact. But, it would be counterproductive if it encourages the batter to use the arms to drive the knob leaving the bat-head trailing behind.
