BVSA Teaches: Load & Transfer (Small Bat)
On this episode of BVSA Teaches, Frank Ramppen talks about the load & transfer (small bat). Hey guys, here’s a drill that might help. It’s good for kids or even older players who tend to disconnect when they get down and ready to swing. We don’t want the player to half-rotate and get a big looping swing. Instead, we need to stay connected up here and drive that left arm back. Accordingly, we need to be in the position to get down to contact, which should be with arms bent and staying connected at that point. Keeping those arms bent to generate power from the back leg is what we need to do.
To practice this, use one hand and put the short back with the one hand to help work through your load and transfer. Basically, drive straight to the ball without letting the arms lock out here. This drill may or may not work for you, so find what works best for your swing. Keep at this if it does help and work it into your routine.
