Orestes Destrade shows us how to do the "From Ear to Here" drill for hitters. This drill will keep the swing flat, ensuring we have the bat in the strike zone for the longest amount of time. Orestes shows us how to keep the swing short instead of long and around the baseball instead of through, point A to point B, just like a boxer throwing the punch direct instead of around his opponent. This is an excellent tip for those hitters who have longer swings and are not keeping the bat in the zone. Implementing this tip will improve your batting average and increase consistent contact.
