Finish the swing low, with both hands on the bat.
Your head should stay locked in on the point of contact for a good two seconds after contact is made. If your eyes come up too soon, your head will follow, which will impact the direction of your swing.
The goal is to hit line drives or hard ground balls. "Success in the game does not happen in the air," Sanchez says. Practice hitting each ball with intent, making sure you're loading up and striking the ball and not just swinging wildly. "You want to step to hit," Sanchez adds. "Not just step and hit."
