The Speed Hitter works a second way to improve your hitting by increasing your bat speed. Simply slide the over sized O-ring that sits atop the grip and push the ball to the end of the bat. Now, make 10 swings as fast as you can. You’ll swing the Speed Hitter much faster than your own bat and by doing so, you’ll be incorporating the technique of Over-Speed Training to start increasing your bat speed. Follow this routine 5 to 10 times a day to develop dramatically more bat speed at home plate. Then, simply push the baseball back down to the grip and you can switch to working on improving your contact point and swing mechanics. If you make a bad swing with the Speed Hitter, where you cast the barrel of the bat, you’ll immediately know it by what you see, feel, and hear. The sliding ball will contact the end of the bat well before home plate.
Through repetitions with the Speed Hitter, you’ll dramatically improve your hitting and become the best hitter you can be. Swinging the Speed Hitter is great fun and you’ll have a hard time putting it down.
