Fast-Ball middle in and what does Derek Jeter do?
He hits a hard line-drive in the opposite field gap…
How does he do it?
More importantly, how does he do it so consistently while making it look so easy? (If you haven’t watched the “How to hit a baseball like Derek Jeter” youtube video yet make sure you do that first before watching this Derek Jeter Swing Mechanic video).
He does it by letting the ball get as deep as possible to give him more time to make an adjustment. This also allows him to hit pitches on the outer half of the plate and make the adjustment to off-speed pitches low and away as well as the ones left up in the zone.
What’s his approach?
Lots and lots of practice. In this “2 Easy Derek Jeter Hitting Drills for Better Contact” video I’ll share with you how I was able to implement Derek Jeter’s approach to hitting into my overall training.
I hope you enjoy this hitting drill video.
