BVSA Teaches: Low Cone Drill
On this episode of BVSA Teaches, Frank Ramppen talks about the low cone drill. Hey, here’s another drill that can help with bat path and staying inside the ball. Many kids tend to get their hands out too early and swing around their bodies, but this drill can help fix that. You simply put the ball on a tee and have them hit an inside pitch. Most kids drop their bat down and around the ball when hitting this pitch, instead of spinning around it.
So, by doing this drill repeatedly and getting their hands in here to hit that inside pitch, they can start to understand the necessary inside path. You can then graduate up to smaller tees and move the pitch out over the plate a bit. It won’t be much higher but get them to still understand the inside path is necessary to hit that pitch. This drill can be time-consuming, and even if they do it perfectly, the bat may still hit the tee. As with most drills, repetition is key.
