Hitting Fundamentals
by Rod Delmonico

Hitting Fundamentals presents a detailed overview of the absolutes of hitting. The fact that all good hitters have at least two things in common—aggressiveness at the plate and the ability to concentrate from pitch-to-pitch—is discussed. This course also breaks hitting up into three basic phases (the stance, the stride, and the swing) and examines the techniques and mechanics involved in each phase. In addition, a series of proven drills for developing the key aspects of hitting is also featured.
