I'm pulling everything to the left side. Please help!

Tuesday, March 05, 2013 by Erin

Hi, I am 16years old and play for an 18U travel softball team. I have very quick hands and mostly pull everything to the left side, often fouling. My coaches say my swing and mechanics are just fine but I need to learn to be patient and let the ball come to me. I try to wait longer but I am definitely struggling with this. Any suggestions you can offer? Thanks.

Check to see where you are on the plate. Deeper in the box may help. If your front foot doesn't stay closed, your bat angles will drift too far in front of the plate.

Stop turning your hips… too much hip turn, especially with the front hip creates a lot of pulling/foul balls.

You might want to try the fencebuster. It is a revolutionary device that can help train your hands and hips to stay connected on those outside pitches. Developing a hands inside the baseball swing. Also try soft tossing where a thrower pauses for a second while you wait in the ready position after you have loaded. Visit our website at www.fencebusterbaseball.com for more information.
