The hitter’s ability to generate bat speed behind them, allowing the barrel to get a “running start.” The concept is analogous to a sprinter getting a running start.
- Is all about the hitter being able to generate barrel run or bat speed behind them as they approach the hitting area.
- Imagine this as a running start to your swing.
- Barrel falls by tilting the hands backward and down.
- The hands do not drop here. Keep your height.
Set ups barrel run and early entry plane.
