Coach India Chiles talks about crafting skilled slap hitters: It takes patience, hard work and slow progression to learn how to be an effective slap hitter.
Just like any other skill in sports, the fundamentals of the skill must be mastered before moving on. The first priority for slap hitters is hitting an effective ball and getting to first base. Then, they can do more focused work on stealing bases and getting back to home. Encourage your slap hitters to master the building blocks of slap hitting before getting ahead of themselves and wanting to rush RBI's. A good slap hitter can make the difference for a college team.
