Re: Re: Foul balls 1st base side

>>>A good drill to do to stop this would be the two tee drill. One tee with a ball is placed directly behind the one we are trying to hit off of. The back tee is set at about one ball height lower than the front one. The object is to swing down to the front ball and make contact with it without hitting the back tee. This makes the hitter focus on controlling the barrel and staying on top of the ball.<<<

Hi Jess

I would have to strongly disagree with your assessment of the “two tee drill.” I think that teaching a batter to “swing down on the ball” is counterproductive and would not recommend it to anyone.
