Hi I was wondering if anyone knew some drills to stop lunging and throwing basically all my weight and body forward.
One drill I like to use with my players/clients is a soft toss drill that places the tosser at a opposing 45 degree angle behind the batter. This drill kilss two birds with one stone: lunging and hitting inside pitches. The batter gets his separation (trigger slide/load, whatever) and stays in that spot throughout the drill. the tosser then tosses the ball out in front of the inside part of the plate. by being in the trigger slide/load position already, the batter should not stride, therefore teaching the hitter to hit the ball, especially and inside pitch, without over-striding/lunging.
note-also helps hitter stay inside the ball on inside pitches.
hope this helps a little!
