Hitting Program

See live demonstrations of drills for improving rhythm, barrel awareness, strength, momentum, separation, focus, and competitive desire to succeed offensively. Using this program, you'll learn how to:

  • Increase bat speed - Using a series of one arm drills and weight jackets, your hitters will strengthen their hitting muscles without changing their swings. Many of these drills can be done individually or with a teammate.
  • Create a more powerful swing - These drills help those "arm swing only" hitters create separation and momentum in their swing. Generating separation will allow players to hit the ball harder. Coach Mosiello also shares drills that show hitters to stay back on the ball and concentrate on each pitch.
  • Use offset batting practice to teach directional hitting - This drill brings it all together to help hitters find their "hit spots," make adjustments and identify the pitch they can drive.

Coach Mosiello provides drills and strategies that allow players to embrace their individual style while improving their weaknesses. Utilizing this knowledge can help athletes make the adjustments necessary to build a powerful swing.
