Backyard Tip: Soft Toss

The basic skill of contacting a pitched ball with a bat is practiced using the “soft toss” drill. Your child can improve hand-eye coordination, batting stance, swing path and stride, and bat control by practicing the fundamentals used in this drill.

Drill Explanation
Kneel on the opposite side of the hitter’s stance. Make sure that the player is approaching their at-bats as if it were in a game.
The player (wearing a batting helmet) will receive a ball tossed to them underhand and should cross their swing path allowing the player to drive the ball.
