The Many Benefits
From Hitting in the Cage
Repetition - the average major league baseball player takes over 300 swings per day. Seeing pitches over and over will offer the opportunity to become a better hitter mentally and physically.
Focus on contact - it is important to see the ball and to swing through the ball when hitting. Remember to keep your head down and eye on the ball!
Batting Fundamentals - work on the proper hitting fundamentals to reach your maximum potential: stance, bat grip, ready position, load-up, squish, swing, follow thru, release, bat speed - increase your timing in the cage.
Work on ball placement to different locations - hit to the opposite side, hit away, slap hit, or bunt.
Warm up swings before games - loosen your swing up before game time so that you are prepared both mentally and physically for the game.
