Have you ever heard a player return to the dugout after a big hit and say "That
felt so good" or "I hit that so perfectly on the sweet spot I didn't even feel it"? What does this mean? What causes this
great sensation? It is a widely known that every bat has a sweet spot It is the spot on the bat that maximises the distance
and power of a good swing. This is the spot on the bat where contact is made and very little jar or vibration to
the hands is felt.
There is no sting to the hands when a ball is hit with the bat's sweet spot Contact
on the sweet spot provides maximum power contact to the ball and greatly increases the distance and speed of the ball hit.
All balls hit below or above the sweet spot can and often do result in a distinct vibration to the hands and fingers. The
more times a batter is able to hit the ball with the bat's "sweet spot", the more successful the batter will be.
We would like all balls hit to be hit perfectly on the "sweet spot". How can coaches
better teach players to use the "sweet spot"? How can players train to use the "sweet spot"? "Sweet spot" swing training
can be accomplished easily with a new training bat appropriately called the "Sweetspot" Trainer. This new training bat has
a unique design that features a regular bat handle attached to a "sweet spot" only barrel. This unique design forces the player
to get the barrel through the zone and to hit the ball on the "sweet spot" every time.
This new trainer is great for soft-toss, live-arm BP, and cage work. It is also
great for hitting off the tee. If you have not incorporated the "Sweetspot" training bat into your teams or players
daily practice routine, I highly recommend that you do so. You will be amazed at the increase in line drives and hard hit
balls that you see during batting practice and games. Players gain a high level of confidence when they use this new training
bat. The "Sweetspot" also adds an element of focus often absent in batting tee, soft-toss, and batting cage workouts. The
players must keep their eyes on the ball more intensely and they must concentrate on every swing to insure the ball hits perfectly
on the bat's sweet spot.
