Suggested Grade Level:


Grip the bat so the hands are close together and your favorite hand is on top

Stand with knees bent and your side to the pitcher, and put your back elbow up, like stretching when you yawn

Swing the bat nice and level (pretend you are clearing the top of a table), while "squashing the bug" with the back foot

Break the wrists (top hand comes over the top of the other hand) on contact of the ball
