The Fence Drill for hitters

Today’s video tip is a popular drill called the Fence Drill.  As I explain in the video, there are multiple ways to do a Fence Drill.  The video shows how I conduct the drill most of the time.

Note: Although I do not mention it in the video, be careful that hitters do not cheat when they stride by stepping away from home plate.  Doing so will certainly prevent them from touching the screen but it does not teach them the proper stride and hand path that the drill intends to address.  If you find that younger hitters are intentionally or unintentionally cheating that way, place a bat or stick behind their stride foot.  Striding correctly will avoid the bat or stick.
