- When working on the post-contact extension, don’t forget to work on the pre-contact elements of the tee work: relaxed hands, elbow at a 90-degree angle, and fill the gap—between elbow and back hip area—to create a long bat path.
- Point to the pitcher: When going beyond the contact point, the top of the bat barrel should be facing the pitcher, with arms fully extended. Don’t go beyond that point.
- Keep the chest and head over the ball (tee) to ensure the hitter stays in line and doesn’t pull off on the swing.
- Take your time with this extension drill; work at a pace that’s comfortable to the hitter.
