Homework for Week of May 22 - 28
Submitted By James Morrison on Tuesday, May 23, 2017
Here's the homework for this week....

Batting
 
Some demonstrations of the fence drill.  The first version doesn’t use a ball at all (and with groovy graphics)...

Here’s the same drill with a tee if you have one:

Use a fence or even an old bed sheet, something that gives a little so you don’t wreck your bat.  I’d use an old bat if you have one.  Start slow and work up speed.  You should be able to take a full power swing and not hit the fence.
 
Things to concentrate on:
- don’t lean away from the fence
- don’t step away from the fence
- take a proper swing with all movement back towards the pitchers
- focus on hitting the ball right up the middle, front foot down at point of contact
