Tips On Baseball Hitting Mechanics

Use these three tips to remember the main things when stepping in the batter's box: balance, load and exploding through the ball.

Proper hitting technique is critical for baseball players of all skill levels.

“Hitting a round ball with a round bat is one of the most difficult things to do in sports,” says Josh Muecke, a Baseball Tech Rep for DICK’S Sporting Goods.

Muecke says his three keys to hitting success are balance, load and swing at the plate. Following these guidelines helps create power and rhythm as you bat.

“Attack the baseball,” Muecke says. “Swing through it, not to it.” Watch as he demonstrates a proper hitting technique in the batter’s box.
