The "Hitch" Baseball Batting Swing Flaw and How to Fix It.

Batters that have a "hitch" in their swing often have difficulty hitting the fastball. They often get "jammed" and are often late on medium speed pitches. The batter is not "triggering" correctly.

The batter is dropping the hands before taking them to the "power position" or what is often called the "launch position".

This lowering of the hands causes the batter to be late to the strike zone.

SOLUTION: Take the hands slightly up and then back rather than dropping them. has one of the internet's largest and most complete collections of baseball coaching videos, DVDs, and Books.
