Being in a proper, balanced stance is vital. While every hitter’s stance may vary, generally try to stand with your feet shoulder width apart with your hands held comfortably around your back shoulder.

Do you want an edge at the plate this baseball season? Here are 10 tips that will make you a better hitter. 

  1. Hitting with two strikes can be difficult. If you choke up you will be able to control the bat better and strike out less. Good hitters choke up with two strikes.
  2. Staying “Inside the ball” means to keep the bat as close to the body for as long as possible. This will help you have more bat speed and hit the ball harder.
