Bat lag & extension = line drives & long balls

Bat lag and extension when hitting

Typically I only post about softball hitters and softball pitchers with phenomenal mechanics. I couldn’t resist though posting a video about the Yankees right fielder, Aaron Judge. Judge’s mechanics are of course excellent. It helps that he’s 282 pounds and stands at a tall 6’7″. But that isn’t the only reasons that he crushes balls over 500 feet! In this video watch and look and study his bat lag and extension, textbook examples folks!

Bianka played travel ball since she was 10. Played for her dad for Tampa Mustangs, who was also her hitting coach. Bianka committed to LSU her sophomore year of high school! She can hit the snot out of a rise ball. If you get one buy her – feel lucky, because if you throw it again it even at her eyes it’s gone, she makes great adjustments and is a smart hitter! Good job dad Bell!

I’ve been studying hitting mechanics for years and I’ve heard many, many different philosophies, but this kid’s mechanics are off-the-chart incredible!

Just goes to show that you don’t need to be huge to put the ball over the fence. A homerun is merely a byproduct of a good quality swing.

Didn’t play travel softball and only threw fastball while in high school. Coach Earleywine heard about her from a friend. I guess this goes to show that you don’t need travel or fancy recruiting to play D1 in a big way (being over 6 foot tall and throwing over 70 mph helped I’m sure).
