BVSA Teaches: Inside the Tee Drill
On this episode of BVSA Teaches, Frank Ramppen talks about the inside the tee drill. Hey guys, one of the big problems with the younger kids, and again, so many of the problems always go back to the beginning, goes to the stance, the load, the transfer, clip, is teaching that path. And so many kids wanted, we immediately get their hands out, get the barrel out, and swing around their bodies. Well, they’re trying, as you know, to teach them to sway more and from their bodies, using the rotation of their lower half. Using a tee is a little bit of a guideline that is helpful in that. Now, you can do it during tee works, or you can have another tee set up here that they’re actually hitting the ball.
You can do it with front toss also. You can do it live, but you set it up here somewhere behind home plate that’s kind of a guideline. If they swing too long and they get their hands out, they’re going to hit that. It teaches them to keep their hands in, let the lower half rotate first, and swing without hitting that tee. So, I like it more live, well, front toss than I do off of another tee, but it just enforces the bat path. Show back here that you don’t want to be out here. We don’t want the hands going that way, the back going that way. To keep our arms tight, that with this as our guide, we can stay inside, walk right again. Sometimes this quick, sometimes it doesn’t put the notes.
