Hitting the ball hard consistently is the obvious goal of baseball hitting. That is "easier said than done," as hitting consistency is very elusive, especially when off speed pitches come into the hitting equation. To help hitters gain that consistency of hitting the ball hard and often, coaches should coach batters to answer hard-hitting questions. In the on deck circle and upon entering the batter's box, batters should review the answers to these hard-hitting questions, so they are mentally prepared to hit.
Of course, the good news is that, as players become more experienced, the questions and answers flow through players' heads faster, instinctively, and from pitch to pitch. All that thought sequence is necessary, as hitting becomes increasingly mental, once standing in the batter's box during games.
As mentioned, experienced hitters begin to have these hard-hitting questions go through their head quickly, as adjustments must come quickly and continually for hitting success.
