BVSA Teaches: Routine as a hitter
On this episode of BVSA Teaches, Frank Ramppen talks about your routine as a hitter. Hey guys today I want to talk about your routine as a hitter and your approach to hitting. The mental aspect of the game can be challenging, even with good mechanics. We often teach kids proper mechanics, but they struggle to execute in games. Therefore, it’s essential to have a plan and set up routines before the game starts.
For the serious players, visualization and thinking about the game beforehand can be helpful. Knowing your opponent and the pitcher can also provide an advantage. But even for younger players, having a plan and approaching the game with an aggressive mindset can make a difference.
It’s crucial to pay attention to the game and develop patterns to understand the pitcher’s strategy and the umpire’s strike zone. You should have a routine before you get on deck that includes mechanical thoughts and a clear mind once you reach the deck. When on deck, you should focus on timing the pitcher, not just practicing your swing.
When you enter the batter’s box, it’s time to put the routine into action. Have a consistent and comfortable routine that you repeat every time. Remember your mechanical adjustments, approach, and timing from earlier, and go after pitches that you can drive early in the count.
Overall, it’s essential to have a routine and approach to hitting to maximize your success. It’s not just about mechanics but also about mental preparation and focus. Coaches and instructors should emphasize this to their players.
