How to Hit a Baseball - Your Mission

How to Hit a Baseball - Your Mission
By Guest Author Jeffery A Wise

Do you know what your mission is each time you go up to bat? Do you know what you need to do? Are you wanting to just hit it as hard as you can and worry about the consequences later on? What is your overall strategy when you go up to bat? Are you in it only for yourself or the team? To learn how to hit a baseball with a purpose is something you need to be a successful hitter.

Did I catch your attention just now because I'm describing you or the majority of your teammates? Has your coach talked about this before but you haven't been willing to listen? I hope these questions are really making you think because if you want to know how to hit a baseball you can start with your mission.

Speaking of mission, do you know what yours is? Do you know what to look for each time you step up to bat?

Here are a few pointers that will help you understand what your purpose is BEFORE you step into the batters box. It should begin while you're in the on-deck circle or even on the bench waiting to hit.

How many outs are there?
Are you confident and ready to attack the ball?
Are there any runners on base?
Where has the pitcher been pitching everybody?

Asking yourself these simple questions will prepare you to hit the baseball with purpose. Answering these questions intelligently will put you ahead of the curve versus other hitters on your team and probably in your whole league.

So now you know the four top tips that will help you hit the baseball with a mission in mind. Try it out during your next game and even get in the habit of asking these questions during practice. Apply what you learned into your games after that.
