HITTING: good hitter you have to be aggressive

There is one constant: to be a good hitter you have to be aggressive. The team should have an aggressive attitude and "we're going to hit" mentality: "We're going to beat you with the bats. Even our outs are going to be loud." (Loud outs wear the opposing team down after a while. Pitchers become afraid to throw strikes.) The attitude of the team should be: "If you score on us we're going to come to bat in our half of the inning and score right back. If we get ahead we're going to pile on runs. We will beat you with our bats. We never let a hitter's pitch go by. If you throw inside we're going to pull it. If you throw away we're going to the opposite field. We are going to hit the ball hard."

This team attitude is initiated and nurtured by the head coach. He should constantly remind and reinforce to his team that they are good hitters. We have certain verbal cues that we use with our team. Some of them are: "Swing the bat hard, throw the barrel at the ball, hit it hard, never let your pitch go by, go up there hacking." These are phrases that are unique to each coach but their purpose is to constantly remind the kids that they are going to hit the ball and hit it hard.  After awhile this attitude becomes engrained in the players. Hitting is contagious.
