Slow it Down - Coaching Hitting Tip

The faster a pitchers fastball and the quicker a pitcher's delivery often leads to batters moving faster too to prepare. The pitch speed and faster delivery has many hitters get jumpy and it takes them out of their normal hitting rhythm. It should be the opposite, the faster the pitch or delivery the slower the body should be to prepare for the pitch. In that way, players stay back and can see the ball better, as well as maintaining the rhythm and balance to hit the baseball. The only adjustment necessary with the faster pitch or delivery is making sure to get the stride foot down on time.
