Slap Hitting
by: Dan

Linzee,

Having never seen you play, it would be hard for me to say definitively one way or the other. Even if you are very fast, are you a power hitter or a singles hitter? Do you normally bat right or left?

It never hurts to have another tool to use to get on base. The best person to answer that question would be your coach. Should you decide to learn to slap, make sure you continue your regular hitting practice so that you do not lose the 354 you are currently hitting (and hopefully improve).

Best of luck with your upcoming season!

thank you dan, i usually bat right handed and I am mostly a single hitter. Sometimes on the right side a bunt for a hit and I usually get on base. thanks for your help
