What are some drills to speed up my swing? I was so far behind everything it wasn't even funny.
You are most likely just starting late. Try getting in a "ready to swing" position, and get rid of any of those slow pitch habits, like bat waggle, standing upright, open stance, giant leg kick, start-with-your-hands-down, etc.
Basically relearn to hit lol
That's what I was thinking. LOL
Revert back to a baseball swing! It’s all about timing, be SURE to get that front foot down on time, stay inside the ball, never let the barrel beat your hands. And, and, and...........
Trust me, I could go on for a while!
No leg kick, matter fact eliminate your step altogether and pull in your hands. Cut down to ur swing to the bare minimum. Do not stand there with the bat vertical in front of your chest, back up to the ears and elbows back. Gotta cut everything out and rebuild from the ground up. How fast do u consider fast pitch? JW
I'm guessing the guys I have faced are in the 60-70mph range. But when the mound is 45' and their release point is in the 38' range, it get's there quick. I have got two hits, but both were off the handle. So, I'm not getting around quick enough yet. I've eliminated my stride and have closed my stance (I've been stepping in the bucket) which has helped.
Pull your hands in hard when u start coming down into the swing. And dont even worry about swinging ‘thru’ the ball just swing ‘to’ the ball. Is it sling or the pitchers can hop?
They windmill and hop
