|HITTING: UNDERLOADING TIP |
|My tip for underloading is: |
Take a few large dowels (hardware or building store) and get some pipe insulation (black styrafoam like) and duct tape. Cut the dowels to the appropriate length and put pipe insulation on the hitting end of the dowel, cover the insulation with duct tape. Lastly, put some sort of tape on the end the player will hold.
These "bats" are great with all sizes of whiffle balls...we soft- toss rear and side, and also hit off of tees.
Another tip is to use little league bats for underloading. You'll be surprised how many are in garages not being used! Make sure you sand the ends!!
