How to Hit the Ball Then The Turf With Your Irons



How to Hit the Ball Properly in Softball

Steps

  1. Get into "The Ready Position":
  2. Stand with your legs shoulder width apart.
  3. To ensure that you can reach outside pitches, touch the end of your bat to the outside corner of the plate.If you can't touch the edge of the plate farthest away from you, adjust yourself so you can.
  4. Make sure that you have a slight bend in your knees.Stiff legs require you to tighten your muscles, which will reduce the power of your swing.
  5. Pick up your bat.Your "knocking knuckles" (your middle knuckles that bend the middle of your fingers) should line-up. This means that your left hand's knocking knuckles should be in line with your right hand's knocking knuckles. This position will help you snap through your swing, which will add power to your swing.
  6. Rest your bat on your back shoulder.This is called the "rest" position. You will hold this position until the pitcher starts his/her pitch during a real game.
  7. Lift your bat off of straight up, off of your shoulder.If you have completed this step correct, then you should be able to stick your back hand's thumb out and touch your ear.
  8. Angle your bat towards the umpire.This will ensure that your swing will ONLY GO FORWARD. This is a positive swing. Unlike in baseball, you do not want to pull your bat back for power. That is a negative swing. The pitcher in softball is closer than a baseball pitcher, so negative motion will only work in baseball.
  9. When the ball is in front of you, bring the knob of the bat (the end of the bat where the bat's grip is) towards the ball.This is the whole concept of positive motion.
  10. Extend your hands towards the ball.When you make contact with the ball, roll your wrists overs and extend your wrists out toward the outfield.
  11. After you snap your wrists, pivot your back foot and point it towards the pitcher.Turn your hips toward the pitcher.
  12. The last part of the swing is the follow through.Do not stop putting your strength into your swing when you contact the ball. This is a common mistake, and it will reduce the power of your swing. Pull your back arm and tuck it underneath your shoulder.
  13. Run the bases after every hit, whether you expect a fielder to catch the ball or not, make the effort to reach base.

    When someone hits the ball in the air, do I freeze?

    If the ball is popped up, remain near your base. If it's hit into the outfield and looks like it will be caught, go about half-way to the next base and wait to see if it's caught. If so, retreat to your base. If it's not caught, continue to the next base or beyond. If the ball is hit deep, return immediately to your base and tag up if you think you can make it safely to the next base. Your coach should be talking to you during this time to help you decide what to do.
    Thanks!

    If you feel like you can make it across to the other base, yes. However, doing so involves taking the risk of getting tagged out. But if you think you have the time to get across, do not hesitate.
    Thanks!

    There is no definite answer to that except to say to try hard! Always focus and never care about what other people think. Hit the way that you know will work best and carry through with the swing.
    Thanks!

    Of course! If you don't feel safe making it to the next base then stay, but you should always pay attention to your coach(es), as he/she/they know best.
    Thanks!
  • Question
    Do I want my front foot to be picked up in a softball swing?

    Community Answer
    I think so. In my experience, this gives you more power in your swing, sending the ball flying further and with more speed.
    Thanks!

    If it's above your shoulders, then no. Just don't swing at a bad pitch and think positive.
    Thanks!
