Baseball Strength development - Top Hand Hitting Drills

Good morning. Baseball Isolation batting drills are baseball hitting drills that work one specific part of the baseball player's body. The "Top-Hand" baseball batting drill builds top hand skills and accuracy.

Top-Hand Baseball Batting Drill

The top hand on the grip is the hand that takes the bat to the ball. It is important to develop strength and skill with this hand. To do this we do a one-handed isolation drill. The batter uses just the top hand. Gripping the bat at the top of the grip and using the bat like a tomahawk, the batter tries to get over the top of the ball and hit it into the ground. The batter has a coach or player soft toss the ball above the waist. The batter hits the ball from the top and drives it straight into the ground.
The Derek Jeter Target Baseball Trainer and the Derek Jeter Hurricane Baseball Hitting Trainer are two great trainers to use when performing this drill.
Suggested - 25 Swings - 3 Times a week.

Have a great day, Nick
