||HITTING: CONE DRILL
|HITTING: CONE DRILL |
|I learned this one while watching my daughter go through a batting clinic taught by a group of women that play, coach, and recruit for a major university. |
The drill involves a cone, a ball,a 36 inch piece of thick rope (taped at both ends to stop fraying) and a lot of concentration. Place a ball on top of the cone and attempt to take a proper swing with the rope and hit the ball solidly. You will want to tell the girls to release their top hand to prevent hitting themselves in the back with the rope. If this is the perfect drill to practice as it will aid in concentration, stride and hand positioning.
