Many kids drop their hands before beginning the baseball swing, which usually leads to a great number of popped up balls, if not strikeouts. No matter how many times you tell them to keep their hands up, they cannot do it, at least on the pitched ball. To help players keep their hands up and their bat in good starting position, this hitting drill works for that. Coaches can begin this drill on the batting tee and can also use it with flipped or pitched balls. When players drop their hands, they will get immediate feedback as they hit the battingtee, which is behind them and about waist high. After awhile, they understand the concept of keeping the hands up, which will help prevent the great number of popups they get.
