Jennifer Maloney describes the difference between a power slap and a soft slap. The difference? The point of contact on the ball.
For a soft slap, the point of contact is on the top half of the ball. For a power slap, contact the middle of the ball. It’s also important to understand when to hit the ball, how to swing through the ball, and where to point the bat during the follow-through for each slap. Maloney describes the nuances of each type of hit and how to train your players to successfully execute them.
