Getting hitters off their back foot (part 2)
Back in February I posted a video about how to get batters off their back foot. If you have not seen that video, click HERE. After posting the video, a viewer posted a comment asking if tire chocks could be used. I have to admit that I didn’t know what “tire chocks” were so I Googled them and … Holy Cow! They look perfect!
The next morning I went straight to Walmart and bought two of the kind shown in the photo for under $10. Since then I have used them with my son’s 9u team multiple times with success.
As I said in the video, if you have a player who is having difficulty generating power and bat speed, it could be that he is not getting his weight off his back foot. Something like a tire chock forces them to transfer more weight forward into the ball.
Give them a shot! I love them!
