Nike Softball Tip: Improving a Level Swing
Making sure you have a level swing can sometimes be difficult in the middle of the at bat. One helpful drill to ensure the perfect level bat is the rope and ball drill. With a simple rope, string it through a wiffle ball. Tie one end to a tree or post, and the other end to another tree. The rope should be at the level of a perfect strike. With your bat follow these simple steps.
-Position your batting stance with the wiffle ball out near your front hip
-Go slowly and get to the plane of the ball
-once at the plane, push out on the wiffle ball and finish through
This drill should be repeated about 20 times and performed slowly.
