Proper Swing Plane / Bat Path Drills

Proper swing plane or bat path through the hitting zone allows for various points of contact, which helps the hitter impact the ball more consistently. Developing the barrel control to stay long through the zone gives the hitter some room for error in making contact with a pitch. By getting on plane with the pitch, the hitter can be slightly early or slightly late and still have a good chance of impacting the ball.

Proper Baseball Swing Plane

The physics are pretty simple. Get the bat on plane early in the swing and you will have more of an opportunity to accelerate to the ball. The longer it’s accelerating on that path, the greater the bat speed, and the faster the bat is moving, the harder you will hit the ball. Developing muscle memory for getting on plane quick and staying on plane longer will provide various points of contact and more power.

The correct angle at which the bat enters the zone is crucial to consistent and solid contact, but this can be a very difficult component of proper swing mechanics to master for any player. Common swing flaws can usually be fixed by focusing on how the bat is working through the zone. These are the 2 most common issues hitters usually experience:

  1. The barrel is in and out of the zone: The hitter works across his body and across the plate. While using the LineDrivePro Trainer, the hitter will see the ball launch to the pull side.
  2. The path is too long: The hitter drops (loses) the barrel early and either drags the bat across the plate or swings up through zone. With the LDPT, the ball will launch up or to the open side.

A Swing Path Trainer with Instant Feedback on Proper Bat Path

The instant visual feedback from the trajectory of the ball enables the hitter to learn how their bat is working through the zone and feel what adjustments need to be made. The LineDrivePro Swing Plane Trainer simplifies technical jargon and complicated terminology. The baseball swing plane trainer visually demonstrates hard-to-explain fundamentals so hitters of all ages and skill levels can learn how to eliminate common swing flaws and focus on building proper baseball swing mechanics.

Utilizing baseball hitting drills that promote proper swing plane is paramount for baseball or softball players looking to get more hits. LineDrivePro gives hitters the tools to see how the barrel is working through the hitting zone so they can make the proper adjustments to their bat path.

Swing Plane Drills

Aiming for a target 25 or 55 ft. away allows hitters to practice getting on plane with the average pitch by seeing & feeling the ball launch at a slightly upward trajectory.

Setting up the LineDrivePro Hitting Target either 25’-30’ (for juniors) or 55’ (for advanced players) away at the proper height ensures hitters practice staying on the exact plane of 5-7 degrees – the downward angle of an average MLB pitch (softball will vary). When line drives are launched straight at the center of the target the hitter knows the bat path is correct and the barrel is staying long through the zone. Hitters struggling to get on plane with a pitch will benefit from the self-teaching hitting trainers.

The LineDrive Pro Swing Trainer & Hitting Target keep hitters engaged and having fun while they practice. These simple drills can be set up anywhere and provide hitters with a visual target to aim for and a point system to make things competitive.

Best Hitting Aids for Youth Baseball

As parents, we all want to see our kids performing at the top of their hitting game. However, the road to achieving peak performance can seem complex and daunting. There are numerous hitting aids for youth baseball players on the market. There is also an abundance of coaches willing to offer expensive private hitting lessons. So which youth baseball hitting aids make the most sense for your son or daughter?

The key is to select the training source that makes developing the proper swing path a fun and intuitive process. Preferably without draining your wallet. Enlisting the help of a hitting coach tends to be thought of as the most trusted route to take. While hitting instructors will agree that having strength through the hitting zone is an absolute.  Each hitting instructor teaches bat path in a unique way that can sometimes be controversial. This can cause issues with learning proper baseball swing mechanics for youth players. However, The LineDrivePro Swing Trainer takes the guesswork out of it through visual feedback that the hitter sees and feels. The baseball hitting drills are also fun. Check out our list of kids baseball drills for 3 youth hitting drills young hitters will enjoy.

Ranked One Of The Best Baseball Hitting / Training Aids

BY BASEBALL MADE FUN

The LineDrivePro Trainer baseball hitting aid has a proven track record of helping youth baseball players to both develop a feel for and see the results of a proper swing path through a no-pressure, natural progression. In fact, a recently posted article by Baseball Made Fun named the 5 Best Hitting Aids, and LineDrivePro Trainer was #1 on their list of hitting aids for youth players. The site found LineDrivePro to be the most effective training aid. This is due to the simplicity of how it straps directly to the player’s own bat, creating a natural experience for the hitter. The immediate visual feedback offered by seeing the ball leave the bat makes the process of learning proper swing mechanics intuitive for the player and shows that baseball hitting aids are the best coaches. Plus, learning to control ball movement makes training fun by turning hitting drills into a game of target practice using our Hitting Target & Swing Trainer ProBundle.

We know that each player is unique and improvement is a continuous process.  You may find the need to re-evaluate your young hitter’s training needs as they grow and develop. The great thing about LDPT is that it is applicable to a hitting program designed around its sole use or utilized as a hitting tool within a broader training approach. Athletes of all ages and skill levels can benefit from the use of The LineDrive Pro Trainer as it is one investment that will continue to help your hitter refine his or her ideal bat path for years to come.
