The theme of Michele’s videos is quickness and speed. It’s widely accepted in the fastpitch softball and baseball communities that quick hands and a quick bat are key components in a successful hitters swing. Bat speed results in more power and the ability to hit for a higher average. Quick hands also enable you to sit back and see the pitch longer which helps you become a more patient hitter.
In this first video, Michele discusses the best way to grip your bat in order to increase your bat speed.
In the second video, Michele discusses the importance of developing a short/quick swing and shows you the ideal swing path.
