What we're going to do is take the words from the most viewed hitting instructors on the web, question them, and show you why most of the one size fits all swing approach's don't work for the majority of you!
If you're looking for the best technique, say, rotational or linear, we'll show you the holes in each of those swings as they relate to fastpitch softball, as well as show you the strengths of each of those swings as they relate to fastpitch softball.
Here's just a small sample of what we'll be breaking down. When you understand the angle in which the pitch will be approaching the hitting zone, you'll gain a better understanding of how to get your bat into the contact zone and keep it there for the longest period of time (see below)
If you look at the images in this photo to the left you'll see two Blue lines. The top blue line represents the top of a pitchers mound (10 inches above the batters box) in baseball, the lower blue line represents the softball pitching circle (Flat or level with the batters box.) The Red Circle represents the Baseball pitchers release point and the Yellow circle represents the Softball pitcher release point. The Red and Yellow lines represent the angle each pitch is delivered in their respective sports. It's very clear to see here that every pitch in baseball is coming downhill and not so in softball.. So what does this mean? If you're being taught a "One size fits all swing" you're subject to major holes in that swing and for the 95% of us that aren't gifted with elite skills, this can, and will be very frustrating. If you want to improve your contact we'll show you the simple adjustments that will make your fastpitch softball swing much more powerful and effective..
So we hope you come back and that you'll tweet your friends to check it out... Until then Happy New Year! Let's make 2011 the best year ever!
