In the many years I've been playing hardball and slo-pitch I've managed to achieve a pretty good batting average frequently hitting with power. I've spent a lot of years studying batting technique and managed throughout the years in slo-pitch to consistently hit over 650 with a homerun frequency of 1 out of every 3 or 4 at bats.
I don't pretend to be the best out there as there are many guys who hit consistently better than I do, but watching them and from my own experience I can offer tips and strategies in the following areas which may help you:
The Hitter's Checklist
Mental preparation and visualization
Understanding current situations
Gripping the bat
Your hitting trigger
The swing and follow-through
Training your eyes
Defining your role in certain situations
Knowing your own swing - strengths and weaknesses
How to get out of a slump
Because of the nature of slo-pitch - a bunch of people getting together who enjoy a great game - there usually has not been a great deal of coaching.
I was lucky. Since I was six years old I have played competitive hardball through all the leagues up to Men's Senior Baseball with the Etobicoke Rangers and have received some interesting coaching throughout those years.
