Softball Hitting Drill - "L" Load

Drill Name: “L” Load

Description: Use this softball hitting drill to engage muscles all through the body to fire up and explode into the swing.

Over-exaggerate the load by sitting deeper in the legs and shifting weight back farther; stay balanced on the back side by making an “L” with the front foot firing up the back side to push off.

Hands stay high.

Keep the core engaged during the soft front foot stride and plant, focusing on balance.

Then, explode into the swing.

About the Author

Joe H. Tanner Baseball Products was founded by retired coach Joe Tanner after nearly fifty years in baseball. Joe realized a need in the game and solved it with the first Tanner Tee prototype. It was lightweight, portable, and easy to work the inside and outside part of the plate. It disassembled with ease and could be transported from the cage to the ball field in nearly any personal equipment bag. His tee was adjustable and held its height based on friction mechanics. Joe earned three patents for his Tanner Tee.
