If you are a baseball player, you probably have dreams of hitting great home runs, just like the pros. It’s true that home runs are exciting, especially for the player who hits one. But, that shouldn’t be the only important aspect of baseball hitting. In fact, home runs should really be an afterthought.
While there are many baseball hitting techniques that players should know, one very important one is known as the trigger mechanism, when you adjust your swing on an off-speed pitch. During this technique, you transfer your weight from front, to back, to front again. It begins right before the pitch is thrown and ends when you make contact with the ball.
