> I am a 12 year old who plays for a travel AAU team. I am a lead-off hitter and i am a righty, and i am very fast. I would like to learn how to become a switch hitter. What are some things like drills that i could do to help me be a stronger hitter from the left side. Also it feels very awkward gripping the bat lefty what should I do? Approxamately how long does it take to become good at switch hitter? When I become an okay hitter from the left side and a righty pitcher is pitching should I bat lefty to get used to batting lefty? And is it worth it in the long run to become a switch hitter?

Put in a lot of practice time. After while it will feel natural. It will probably take at least a year. Also, practice doing more everyday things with your left hand in an effort to build up dexterity.
