I have a very bad habit of telling my clients to do their homework, but forget to tell them what to do and how often to do it. I get so disappointed when they don’t do their homework, until I realize that the problem is on me.
Your baseball homework should be simple. It doesn’t require a huge invest in time in the batting cage or back yard. If you have a batting cage and other equipment that’s great, but the drills I am officially giving you as homework are simple and don’t require much equipment at all.
Okay, now here are three drills to add to your homework list:
The Hop Drill
Getting loaded properly with good tempo is as important as it is to eat food to survive and thrive. Without the load and tempo working together properly, you will struggle to drive the ball and reduce your chances to get hits.

The Ball-Wall-Ball Drill
Maintaining good tempo during the load and completion of your swing is the most desired outcome, yet it is difficult to do. Pitchers change speeds and locations to prevent you from using your body to produce power. If you can repeat good mechanics as a skill, it won’t matter what the pitcher tries to do. A fast body produces a slow bat, while a slow body produces a fast bat.
