How to Hit a Baseball – Hands “Extending” Through the Hitting Zone

Watch this professional baseball player demonstrate how to improve extension through the hitting zone using the Powercore 360 Baseball Power Hitting System to feel the hands and bat moving long through the zone.

Different players and hitting instructors believe and teach different swing techniques. This player demonstrates a “short down to the ball” hand and bat path which is different from others belief that the hands and bat barrel need to get on the plane of the pitched ball early so the barrel is on the same plane or path of the ball for a longer time as it comes through the hitting zone.

Which ever style you use to the ball, training the hands and bat to extend through the hitting zone, [versus rolling the hands over early (which tends to pull the ball, making it more difficult to hit to the opposite field)], should allow the hitter to hit the ball harder.
