9 Absolute Hitting Fundamentals

Having worked and talked with many college and professional hitting coaches all over the country, we have found that great hitters generally have many different hitting styles and stances.  However, it is our conclusion that great hitters & hitting coaches everywhere generally subscribe to certain absolutes.  The following are what we feel are the nine absolute hitting fundamentals, commonly taught by major league hitting coaches:

1. See the Ball

2. The Grip

3. Rhythm

4. Balance

5. Load the Knob

6. Separation

7. Stay Square

8. Let the Ball Come to You

9. Think “Swing First, Turn Second”
