Our hitting mats for baseball and softball are the perfect training tool to use during batting practice. Refine your batting setup, stance, and stride to improve your swing, build confidence, and gain a competitive advantage in the batter’s box.
Plate Positioning: The placement of your feet in relation to home plate.
Stance: The placement of your feet in relation to one another.
Stride: Your stride is how you create momentum by moving and pivoting your front foot, engaging your core strength from the ground up, and triggering your swing.
Try out various positions, and once you’ve found your optimal setup, stance, and stride, it’s time to build it into a habit by repeating practice drills until your hitting motion becomes muscle memory.
