  • strike zone?

    i need help, is there any drills or anything that can help me know the strike zone better? Lately i have been swinging at bad pitches and i don't think i know the strike zone as well as i should.

    If you have a batting cage you can hang two strings for inside and outside ball/strike and have someone pitch BP to you from about 20 feet. That will allow you do swing yet see where it was.

      Sometimes (not saying this is your issue) hitters who chase bad pitches do not have a solid game plan when they step into the box. Because they haven't truly identified their strength zone, they tend to chase a lot more pitches. There are places on the plate that you must identify as your "red" zone. These are the locations on the plate you will crush when a pitch is thrown there.

      By locating the places in the zone you hit well, you'll find your confidence grow. Once that happens, you'll become less of a defensive hitter by swinging at a pitcher's pitch. Hope some of that made sense.
