If you swing the bat the right way, you won’t have to worry about doing it the wrong way. I know: It’s easier said than done, right? But it is the truth.
At the very least, you’ll experience consistent success if you learn how to make quick and accurate adjustments during your at bats. Your swing consists of six parts, including the stance, load, approach, contact, extension and finish. In addition, your swing is supported by two components – timing and tempo.
Remember: For every cause, there is an effect. Solve the cause and you solve the effect.
Here are four cause/effects relationships:
Effect: Not letting the ball get deep
Cause: Not getting loaded on time
Effect: Hitting pop ups
Cause: Not getting the front foot down properly for leverage and direct approach to the ball with the hands and barrel
Effect: Not extending through the ball
Cause: Collapsing the backside causing a long approach and poor contact
Effect: Not tracking the ball well
Cause: Getting loaded too fast, control the tempo

Remember: Good hitters don’t work hard; they work smart.
