Step 1 – Door Knocking Knuckles
When gripping the bat, have the player line up their knuckles to keep their arms inside the body’s frame.
Step 2 – Proper Hitting Position
With the door knocking knuckles lined up, the player’s swing will maintain the proper bat angle through the hitting zone.
Step 3 – Contact Point
Lining up door knocking knuckles prevents the shoulders from dipping, eliminates a looping swing and allows the hands to properly carry the barrel of the bat to a solid point of contact with the ball.
Note: This technique applies to baseball and softball.
