A Fast Way To Improve Players Focus - Timing - Quickness - Contact
I am a HUGE fan of skinny bat training... using a smaller-than-game size bat and/or ball to make players focus on hitting a round ball off a rounded bat.
The fact is that so many potential homeruns and hard hit balls are simply fly ball outs... by a fraction of an inch from where the ball actually contacted the bat... as opposed to where it actually should contacted the bat... those fractions are difference-makers over an entire season!
Smaller diameter... makes you really earn your solid hits!
So what if we simply add the following benefits that our mule kicker offers you:
Game bat weight... so player is forced to use same muscle groups, in same order and at same capacity as your game bat!
Adding a simple audible "click"... training players to build the correct & quick swing path while giving them feedback on each swing!
Remember, the Mule Kicker training bat is a great way to use this training... while hitting any game baseball or softball or your lighter weight or smaller training balls too!
And do all of this without asking players to work, longer harder or harder!
