Hitting – Drills to do with Correct Momentum Leg and Hip Movement for Proper Baseball Swing

This is a great tool that helps reinforce the proper balance of a hitter and helps the hitter understand when their weight is moving forward so they can utilize full power

For baseball and softball the Hitters Power Drive teaches proper weight distribution and transfer of weight from the hitters load position with backside hip and leg drive referred to as positive move position. The training aid teaches by multisensory “CLICK” feedback with a combination of auditory sound and kinetic feel. The timing of hearing this “CLICK” trains hitters to initiate power with their back hip, leg and foot with their transfer which creates a power drive moving forward vs. spinning out, leaking, drifting or floating out front and not hearing the click at all or to late after ball contact. The metallic “CLICK” sound of the standing plate striking the ground plate allows this immediate real time feedback. The Hitters Power Drive operates on gravitational force with a hitters natural momentum swing and weight transfer just like in a game. There are no springs that would cause a pause, hesitation or resistance to a natural hitting swing. The HPD was developed from the trainers and inventors of the original US Patent Pitchers Power Drive for baseball. Designed by professional trainers at Winning Pitchers Academy in Boston, MA. There is a web base training site for “Owners Only” that is free and updated several times per year. Professional and collegiate coaches teach how to train with drills and via live hitting.
