BVSA Teaches: Moving Plate Drill
On this episode of BVSA Teaches, Frank Ramppen talks about the moving plate drill. Hey guys, today we’re going to talk about the mechanics of swaying and how to practice timing. Some people think regular batting practice isn’t good for timing because it’s at a different speed than what you see in a game. In a game, you’ll see all kinds of pitchers with different speeds, angles, deliveries, and ball movement. So, it’s important to practice timing by throwing in different speeds and changing the placement of the pitches.
As we get closer to the season, we focus less on mechanics and more on timing. You can do live pitching and make it up as you go, gauging your students’ frustration level and achievement level. Take X amount of swings from one spot on the map and then move up to another station. Moving closer to home plate in your rounds of batting practice is real effective in timing as you get closer to the season. Remember, part of being a good hitter is being able to make adjustments.
