Improving Your Baseball Swing

baseball swing

If you play baseball or softball, there are a few ways that you can add power to your swing. The simplest way is to visit your local sporting goods store and choose a baseball bat of the appropriate size and weight. Next, you can improve your stance. Take a step towards the pitcher at the beginning of your swing, keeping your weight balanced. The toes on your leading foot should point towards the pitcher to keep your body from twisting as you swing.

Before swinging, your hands should be up around your chest, and your elbows should be at a 45-degree angle. If your hands or elbows are too high, you’ll hit the ball into the ground. When you hit the ball, your hands should remain close to your body. As you swing downwards, the palm of your top hand should be facing, and your swing should end with your arms high to ensure follow through.

Choosing the Right Baseball Glove for Your Position

When choosing a baseball glove, comfort and fit are very important considerations. Beyond that, you must choose a glove appropriate for your position. Different gloves are made specifically for infielders and outfielders, as well as first basemen, pitchers and catchers. Talk to your coach and read this guide before visiting your local sporting goods store for your sports equipment.

Pitcher’s Gloves and Catcher’s Mitts

Pitchers can typically use any type of infielder glove. When choosing a pitcher’s glove, you want to find one with a closed glove. This allows you to hide the ball and handgrip from your batter. A catcher’s mitt is very distinctive. As catchers need to catch balls thrown at high speeds, the glove is more padded and much larger than other gloves to provide protection for your hands. Its larger size makes for a larger target for those throwing the ball to you.

First Basemen Gloves

First basemen gloves are very different from infielder and outfielder gloves. The glove is larger, without finger holes. The edge of the glove is curved to facilitate picking up balls from the ground. It is also larger to provide a better target for those throwing the ball.

Infielder and Outfielder Gloves

Infielders use smaller, lighter gloves to allow the player to move quickly. Second basemen gloves are smaller and allow the player to transfer the ball easily from hand to hand. Shortstop gloves and third basemen gloves are longer, allowing them to increase their throwing range. Third basemen gloves also have a deep pocket and open web, which makes it easier to catch fast balls thrown from short distances. Outfielder gloves are the longest. They also have a deep pocket to prevent fly balls from popping out of the glove.
