Q. Hitting: Hand Eye Progression Drill

Bunting Practice at ABC Camp

A. Throw whiffle balls at the kid and let him hit with the huge red whiffle ball bat. When that gets easy, switch to a normal size whiffle ball bat. When that gets easy switch to those skinny long whiffle ball bats. When that gets easy use golf whiffle balls. When that gets easy, throw sunflower seeds or macaroni at him.

The whiffle ball bat takes the weight of the bat out of the equation. It becomes strictly a hand-eye coordination drill. It is fun and challenging as well. Don't do the progression all in the same day or week. Take your time.

Remember to make a point system for hits. Hit it past the bush, 2 pts., over the driveway is 3 pts., etc.. He'll be having so much fun, he won't even know that this is a drill to improve his hand-eye coordination. You want your players or son to be begging you to go outside and work on things? Don't make up drills, make up drills, but call them games, and make up a point system.
