Training Exercises & An Interactive Challenge

We don’t have any breaking news to report about the resumption of play. But to stay engaged while we wait, we will suggest training activities and challenges over the next few weeks.

This week’s exercises require NO equipment: no tee, no net, not even a baseball.

STEP ONE: Review these two short videos: The 7 Steps to the Perfect Baseball Swing

Mike Trout Hitting Mechanics Slow Motion Baseball Swing - 10000fps LA Angels MLB home run 

STEP TWO: Even with no net or tee you can get hundreds of swing reps every day. These are the same whether you are in Tee Ball or Majors. You can do these with anything in your hands - tee shirt, used paper towel roll, pool noodle, etc. These are all best to do in front of a mirror.  


  1. Practice stepping into the box, sway back and forth, hands back - repeat 10x
  2. Step into box and set-up - knuckles aligned, hands back and ready, bat pointing up - repeat 10x
  3. Now take 10 swings in slow motion; 10 swings at 50% (half-speed); 10 swings 75%, then 10 swings at 100%
  4. Repeat 1-3 outside with actual bat and helmet


STEP THREE: Video your swing and compare it to Mike Trout’s! Post your video – or share your favorite hitting exercise without a net – on our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/fckll.va/
