If you're getting frustrated because your team doesn't score many runs, this video featuring Randy Schneider, Todd Merical, and Tom Drohner has exactly what you need to reverse that trend. You will learn hitting mechanics and drills that will improve the swing of your hitters and generate more solid contact. Then, once your players have gotten on base, you'll see how to increase run production by learning how and when to be aggressive on the base paths.


Start by learning the key mechanics for the swing and the drills to perfect them. Coach Schneider touches on the stance, load and separation, and attacking the front heel and why these mechanics will help your players become better hitters. 10 drills are included that will help build your athletes' fundamental, mechanical base.


Need more hitting drills? Look no further! From how to set-up team batting practice to breaking down the swing, coaches Schneider, Merical, and Drohner offer drill after drill to build your batters' offensive skills.

In one particular tennis racket drill, learn how to use transfer learning to better teach the softball swing. The batter uses the racket to hit a ball just like they would hit a backhand in tennis or racquetball. This transfers to the softball swing as it helps the hitter stay inside the ball and attack with the back hip.


Aggressive baserunning will help your team score more runs. You'll learn how to take several types of leads and attack the next base. The coaches offer seven different drills for baserunning that will have your players applying pressure on the opposing defense and dominating the base paths.

This video includes 41 drills in total that you can implement with your program right away. Build your players' swings and score more runs with aggressive baserunning to turn your team into an offensive force!
