Tips on How to Become a Better Baseball Player

Bat Action baseball Trainer -

By Connor R Sullivan

No one can dispute that baseball is perhaps one of the most popular games in America. Although most people will watch the game whenever it is in season, many more will play the game in their spare time. These games are carried on in practically every town or city around the country on an amateur basis, but most would love to have some extra pointers in the form of a hitting DVD. These discs show hitting drills along with several other kinds of exercises that is purpose built to give the athlete some extra tips when playing the game.

Everyone swings a bat slightly differently from everyone else, and because of this it is sometimes difficult to teach someone which is the right way. Even if many tapes of past games are watched, nothing will show exactly what the batter is feeling, how hard he is swinging the bat or indeed, what the weather conditions are there on the field.

To counteract this, there have been training manuals, in electronic form, put together to show how to be consistent when playing the game. Of course, much will depend on the pitcher who will be launching the ball, but if the batter is trained often enough to look out for tell tale signs, then he will probably have better success in the game.

The idea of the batter practicing so much is that he will start to get better coordination between the bat and his eye. Training over and over again with the same routine will make him more confident when he makes that swing thus making it a more accurate, and probably faster. Raising skills will obviously lead to much better play, which is perhaps the reason for so much interest in instructional discs.

Many will highlight different plays to fool the opposition into moving in the wrong direction. These are known as ball tricks, but some are counted as illegal. When a fielder hides the ball, after supposedly throwing it back towards the plate, he will wait for a runner to move off base. This is now when he proceeds to touch the base making that particular runner to be out. However, this sort of play can be ruled as illegal and care should be taken if incorporating this kind of play into any game, professional or not.

Although every player will have all the essential rules, regulations and plays at his disposal, there will always be room for improvement and this is where these practice discs come in. By studying them as a team, all can learn to communicate with each other within the game while improving his own skills at the same time.

Even if the team is very young, getting used to studying the plays and routines will bring a sense of commitment to young players. This can not only make them more enthusiastic, it can also show them how to use discipline in their daily life routines. This must be a good thing no matter how much ball is played!
