Hitting Clips

Triple Tee & 14" Ball

Dierdre,  demonstrating hitting the 14 inch ball off the  Nemo Triple Hitting Tee.
A great training aide to promote short  to the ball and staying long thru the hitting zone.

In this drill we are using a Nemo's speed training bat ( an under-loader trading aide ) to help increase bat  speed & reaction time. 

If you want to increase bat speed  you must move the muscle and or bat in the direction of speed. On average you can swing the Nemo's speed training bat six to eight miles faster then you could  a regular Bat.

For every 2 mile increase in bat speed one  can hit a baseball 30 feet further and a softball 20 feet further in distance based upon research studies.

Nemo's Speed Hitting: Bat Barrell Drop & Casting

Maylea Burns ( Union H.S ) demonstrates how to correct the hitting faults of bat barrel drop & casting away from your body....

Tapping of the vertical poles gives the batter the feel of doing the drill incorrectly...

To avoid hitting the poles you must get your hands to your center axis or navel.

Soft Toss

Top Hand Punch Drill

West Linn’s Kaci Spain demonstrates the 4 inch top hand separation drill to enhance the Palm Up / Palm Down position of the hands. This is also a great drill to promote the L shape principle of the right elbow and forearm ,

Hammer Mallet Drill

Kaci Spain  West Linn High School demonstrates the hammer Mallet Drill to maintain the box or contact position by keeping her hands above the hammer and the Mallot square on the ball.

Note: We are freezing our swing just after contact. This is a great training aide to improve power at the point of contact.

Handle is 15.5 Inches long

Alternative Weighted Balls 

​The blue balls weigh in at 9 ounces and the red balls weigh one pound. A fabulous drill to develop power at the point of contact developing wrist and forearm strength. There is an added benefit by hitting the ball in the open spaces of the yellow ribbon band which will help with vision.

Four Part Combo Drill

 Emma (Franklin H. S.) demonstrates the following four part combo drill.
1. Squaring of the hips
2. Sit or flexing of the thighs
3. Loading of the front elbow or getting to center mass-
4. Pulling of the back heel up or back knee press.

Weight Shift Transfer Drill

​This drill demonstrates a great vertical stack position with a back knee press for greater hip explosion to the ball. In this hitting clip she displays a good combination of bat speed and power. She is using the Weight Shift Transfer Mat

Notice: after she hits the ball she has a good weight shift transfer getting on her toe with her heel pointing to the sky

Over the Top Drill

Nemos Speed Hitting: Chucker Drill One

Maintaining The Box Position

Emma Foster demonstrates an excellent training aide:  "the Chucker" to help teach the box or contact position.

At the point of contact the batter stops her forward movement with The Chucker Trainer and the tennis ball will eject out from the training aide.

A simple but very effective teaching aide to maintain the box or contact position when the bat hits the ball.
