Big League Slugger Dave Magadan shares a drill he likes to use with hitters of all ages in this segment, designed to help the player recognize the different pitches he might encounter. In order to be a good hitter you have to be discipline, as the pitcher wants you to hit his pitch. Training your eyes how to recognize pitches and knowing what ones to swing at is what all good hitters have in common.
